I wish I had read the other reviews before I wasted my credit for this one. I couldn't get past the first 20 minutes. That narrator was horrible!! I have listed to hundreds of audio books. This is the first time I just stopped before I finished the book. It may be a great story, but I'll never find out. I prefer to move on.
More!! I hated it when I finished the last book of the trilogy because I wanted MORE! I love Becca Battoe as the narrator. She added spunk and character to Ana. I would change nothing. In fact, this is one of a very few books that I would (and will) listen to again. Hopefully E.L. James will add to this collection -- or start anew with another series.
I loved the narrator!! I don't understand the negative reviews. This book was addicting. I literally could not stop listening to it. Completed it in a day and a half. Am looking forward to the next two books. Too bad I need to work for a living and can't devote my day to listening to Book #2 yet.
I almost stopped listening after about 30 minutes, but since I love all of Karen Rose's books, I soldiered on. The lisping narrator was so annoying! I'm not sure if it's a speech impediment or if she is lisping on purpose for some unknown reason that only she can answer. Whatever the case, it almost ruined the book for me -- almost. I agree with a previous reviewer, buying the book was an idea I had as well. If not for the narration I would have given it 5 stars.
I have listened to hundreds of audio books and have never written a negative review about a narrator -- but this is the exception. The narration was grating and maddening. I don't know which was worse, the female narrator or the male. Both were equally bad. In fact, I almost stopped listening to the book after the first chapter. It's a good story, but almost isn't worth the horrible listen. Reading the book would have been a better choice this time.
The narrator almost ruined an otherwise good book. Exciting story despite narration. If you can overlook the voice and intonation of the narrator, you will probably enjoy this audio book. In the future I will avoid this narrator.
I agree with a previous review by Henry. There's too much gratuitous sex and not enough story line during the second half of the book. I got sick of hearing about the sexual tension and "heat" between the characters. I enjoyed Dangerous Tides and Night Game much more. This is definitely the weaker of her books. It was hard to make it through the second half.
I have read all of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' books and love ALL of them!! They never fail to disappoint. Funny, entertaining, exciting, everything you hope to find in a book. I found it very hard to stop listening and looked forward to my next opportunity to listen again. I can't wait for another installment. Highly recommend.
The narrator was hard to listen to. The story line was okay but not exciting. If you want a bit of fluff with not much thought to be given to a story line, this will serve that purpose. Again, the narrator was the biggest obstacle. I was glad when I finished this one.
