This is my first review after purchasing hundreds of audios. No voice differences between characters. It is like listening to a computer. Not up to the usual quality of the publisher. I don't know if I have ordered a book with this narrator before but this one is terrible. The book has a little lower price but I'd rather pay a little more to enjoy the listening experince.
Spoiler: Julianna is a very unappealing character and certainly not one for a romance "heroine". She is also an embarrassment to journalists. She refused to retract a story even after she found out there was an explanation. She was not making a stand for "the freedom of the press" but only wanted to keep her "column" and "independence" . She had no regard for her friends and co-workers who could be hurt or even killed. I stopped listening right after she made her selfish, self-centered choice.
Different heroine but some incidents & hero's fear soo drawn I found myself skipping forward!!
Amazing Performer with great character distinctions -even though era, theme may not my favorites I will buy other Kinsale books narrated by him.
Recently I have purchased books with very poor narrations & recording quality. This one was a delightful & most enjoyable listen.
Like hitting replay button. Misunderstanding drawn out way too long with no plot.
Story could have been written in 25 pages.
Good character distinction. Men sounded like men.
Millie after first few pages.
Will try to return this one, very disappointing.
Did not finish-not a historical romance -bumbling heroines irritating !
Not true historical!
Miss original audible before Amazon took over.
Did not finish so annoying.
Depends on performer. This one may discourage trying another Wicklund book
Since it. Is clear she has a speech/diction problem & no acting skill I don't believe it is possible!
Did not finish so can't say.
I can't understand how this audio was even distributed & the performer was chosen by the producer. It always makes me think a relative needed a job!!
Absolutely NOT. WAY TOO BORING -not performed but read in monotone. I never under-stand how such poor quality is produced when there are so many great narrators. Maybe someone is doing a favor for a relative!!
All purchasers of the audio should get a refund!
Anne flosnik's is always great & this one is amazing as she expertly switched from southern American accent to English-male - female very distinct.
Just want more of this quality
Kept my interest & not too much sex
I'm glad I found this book-it is not listed on Audibles historical romances or under the writers name. I found it on amazons lists-something that has happened before-ex. The Ugly Duchess which I emailed the lapse to audible but it still is not listed. After finding a book at amazon I can find it on Audible by searching the titles!!
Irritating, little story, too much aggressive sex--often appears forced.
Since book covered so much bickering & sex I think it would be impossible.
Anger, disappointment, irritation. boredom. Shock as I have been a fan of Coulter and have all her other historical's in audio.
Entire Magic series has same issues. Sorry spent the time and $ on the books.
Better than average story.
Jo Beverley books.
Hero's voice terrible, insipid, weak, unromantic, no
Yes if there was a different narrator.
I don't understand how this narrator's performance got past the producer or the publisher. One would think they'd do
This is only my second review after listening to hundreds of books but I have to make Audible aware of the poor quality of the narration.. I was sooo looking forward to another MJPutney audio but I could barely finish listening. The American Female accents were "horsey" and gruff--not the least bit feminine with diction that certainly did not reflect cultured, well to do Americans. I'm surprised that Brilliance even released this audio as it certainly does not meet their usual high quality.
