Stinky cheese. The book was over the top with sickeningly sweet sap.
No, but instead of books being given ratings for 'level of sensuality', maybe they should also be given a 'cheesiness' rating. Perhaps some readers may enjoy a book full of excessive explanations the depth and level of "love" reached after such a short period of time.
Sure. He did well with that which he had to work.
The telepathic link which was flooded with emotional buckets of sap.
All of the scenes in Iran were so well painted by the author. Though I will never likely see Tehran myself, it was enjoyable to be brought into the country and culture through her words. A much different picture than our media has depicted.
Being unfamiliar with Iranian ways of speaking myself, Farsad was able to add that dimension perfectly, creating a fuller story for me. The accents and tones were so beautifully executed.
Someone who enjoys straightforward sappy romance. I prefer something a bit funnier. It was pretty formulaic with the over the top gorgeous characters, including (obviously) the wealthy playboy, needing to be tamed by the girl with the heart of gold.
Something by Jennifer Crusie or I may try Sophie Kinsella
Perhaps someone who wasn't quite so breathy and trying to pull off "sultry". I thought I was going to have an asthma attack just listening to it.
Absolutely, I would recommend this book. Campy good fun with entertaining and dynamic characters.
Wish I knew....... I'd go read them.
The only thing I found disappointing at all is that she hasn't narrated MORE books. It's hard to adjust to a different reader when trying to listen to another Crusie book, because Vigesaa really seemed to capture the comic tone and created the perfect little nuances of the different characters. She pulled off all of male characters without making them sound like a bunch of sappy dopes.
I immediately went and found the sequel, FAKING IT, and loved the crap out of that one, too.
I started Crusie with these two books. I'll be crushed if it's all downhill from here. I've hated that these books are now a "known" to me, and won't be a fabulous new discovery until the dementia really sets in.
I've enjoyed other Julie Garwood books. Don't know what happened here.
I finished the book two days ago and can't even recall what it was about....... that's how much of an impression it made. I think breakfast had more of a lasting fond impression.
sure. the men were a bit off.
i wouldn't watch it, but i'm not a huge tv watcher.
I'll have to listen to Trapped again because I feel like I didn't follow everything terribly well. Hearne delves into so many different myths and religions that I had a hard time keeping it all straight. Perhaps if I had read the book instead of listening, the names wouldn't have gotten so confused for me.
The sexual tensions between Atticus and his apprentice has been building so delightfully throughout the IDC books and Hearne (and subsequently Oberon and Daniels) couldn't have handled it better.
If Luke Daniels read a book on how to watch paint dry, I'm pretty sure I'd still want to listen over and over again.
This incredibly pompous overinflated piece of scheisse could have been soooo much shorter without missing any of its pretentiousness.
Shorter, less stupid. The characters all seem to be in need of colonoscopies in order to find their common sense.
If I hear his voice, it will be really hard to not associate it with this travesty. I'm not sure how I feel about his performance. If I picture him rolling his eyes and being embarrassed by the drivel that he was paid to read, then I can try to get over how annoyed I was by his performance and attribute it all to the barfable prose with which he had to work.
I guess cutting out the author would have saved a lot of aggravation.
I gave it two stars instead of one since I did see the train wreck through to the end. My bad.
