accents, energy, enthusiasm
Hiccup, he unknowlingly gets himself into messes.
the great accents!
YESSS!!!!!!!!!!! (Mom wouldn't let the boys though; she wanted to stretch it out a bit)!
I waited a long time to read this book, so I tried to multitask and listen to it instead. Absolutely the wrong thing to do. White's narration was terrible. She consistently emphasized the wrong points and had a whiny voice to it. She may be ok for other types of fiction, but not for a self-help type book. It seems like some ideas and points took her by surprise, thus the insufficient enunciations, emphasis, etc. Her voice quickly got on my nerves. I'll try reading the book instead.
Didn't make it to the ending.
No, absolutely not.
I made it through the part about her wonderful friend Patricia. Great story, but very, very long-winded. Anecdotes and short summaries for support of your ideas are appropriate, this was way to long.
Also, I felt I was getting a motherly lecture about the types of friends to cultivate. Don't have too many of this type of friend and definitely keep these sorts in the outer circle. This book was for mothers, not teenagers. Disappointing.
I was really looking forward to someone helping me organize my stuff. What I didn't expect is that this was more about getting rid of your hoarder status and all the "trash" that comes with it. I couldn't get through more than the first few chapters. I felt like he was screaming at me, belittling me and chiding me like a child. He was not talking to someone who just wanted to organize her house, his audience is something beyond simple organization of things.Maybe if I read the book, I'd appreciate it more and actually get to Chapter 4. Just couldn't do it with him in my ear.
Change the tone of his narration.
Too in my face.
probably not as I would want to listen to the next book.
The Sessanach was my favorite. As the main character, I loved her exclamations and the shock portrayed during some of the adventures.
Davina put a lot of energy into the portrayal of these characters. The way she made her voice rise and lower for the characters was great.
The book was entertaining and a bit predictable. You knew when Sessanach would inevitably get into some fray (usually right after she was told not to do something). I was disappointed in that you really didn't get a good feel for her relationship with Frank. She seemed to be upset in terms of leaving him, but I wasn't convinced that their relationship was that strong and something that needed to be contemplated.I also grew a bit tired of listening to how almost every new man who came along looked at her too long or grabbed for her.
