The story line isnt bad, but the style of writing is, in my opinion, really anoying. So are the main characters, especially the woman, whom I personally would hate if she existed in reality. Absolutely no brain at all and not in a good way.
No not really - but it is not a bad performance. The voice of the storyteller was a little bit different in my head - younger sounding and lighter.
The main character, who also tells the story - Jory. He is weird, flawed and absolutely perfect at the same time. His personality is actualy the main reason why this is an amazing story. You cant help loving him and the way his mind work. It makes you listen to the story with a smile on your face.
Cant really tell you - nothing?
Best book by Mary Calmes by far - but you might want to wait until you can listen to all of the books in the "Matter of time" series - because this book is only the begining of the story.
This is a sweet story and Amy Lane isnt bad. I liked the characters she created, flawed and at the same time kind and compassionate. The narrator really need to stop screeching in that annoying tone when speaking for some of the characters!
This is a very NOT realistic story - its a fairy-tale with a plot sort of like the movie the Blue Lagune. Except of course that the characters in this book are adult (or for the male main character - teenager). It is not very well written and not really that good, just not really bad either. Narator is fine.
This is the second book in the virgin river series that I have read - a little backwards as this is the first novel in the series. Robyn Carr tells a good story and the narrator is good. If you like romance novels that are well written and (mostly) realistic, you will like this one.
This is a must read if you like romance novels. Diana Gabaldon makes the story come to life. Humor, love, history (as in you can look it up in a history book and the major events are real), friendship, enemies, war, fate and fantasy - all in one. I have read more books than I could ever count in every genre possible and this makes my top 10. And you should think that you would become borred since it is VERY long - but I am looking forward to the next book in 2013.
I did not enjoy this book as much as fifty shades, but I do understand why everybody is comparing the two. The storylinie in this one is a little borring and sometimes I forgot to listen. Of course it is a matter of taste, but I did not like the main female character overly much. The performance of the narrator is actualy pretty good and she makes the book better. Just like fifty shades, there is a lot of sex scenes in the book, and I think that if you count the minutes you spend listening to this part of the story, it would probably be more than half. Not sure if I will read or listen to the second book in this series.
I accidentally stumbled over another series by Mary Calmes called "a matter of time" and was a little surprised when I flat out loved it. So when I finished that one I thought I would give this one a try too, although I was a little skeptical when it came to the supernatural plot. It is well-written and funny and if you like the supernatural part, you might find this one very good. Ofcourse you should also be able to read about homosexual relationships and their sexlife - otherwise you are in for an information overload, you probably could live without.
Karen Robards almost never disappoints me and this is a good story. Not her best in my opinion but definitely readable.
This story is kind of the story you read a thousand times - not really a surprise, not bad but not remarkable in any way. If you have not read something with a similar plot before then it is as good as any of the others. Would have expected more from this author, who's books I generally enjoy. If you listen to it and dont like it, then dont let it discourage you from reading her other book - most of them are very good.
