Never will I try another of Monica McCarty's books. I was looking forward to a great story of romance, mystery, with a peppering of history. I was expecting to loose myself in a bygone era. What I got was nothing less than pornography. I am not a prude by any stretch, however; when the physical descriptions of the individuals and the states of physical anatomical discomfort and or desire is so often repeated, emphasized, and then regurgitated it completely negates the story. I shall not finish this book. The first hour was so just plain BAD
I really like this genre. I have found much better story tellers
He was fine. He just had nothing to work with.
Not a single one.
I really wanted one of the performer of the first 12 books. Barring that, a Hamish MacBeth story really NEEDS a male reader. Maybe I am just spoiled, but; . . . that is my opinion.
Don't get me wrong, th reader of this book did a great job with the Outlander series. But she is a poor choice for the hardcore Hamish fans like me.
Performer had to fight way too hard to cover her accent it was distracting. I will actually read any offerings with her as the narrator.
good solid story if not a bit predictable. But then again - u can only rewrite history so many times.
It is a good listen save for the horrific editing. Unbelievably poor and distracting.
Although she handles the material quite well, if she had any say in the audio production she should at least listen to the finished production and voice object to poor qualitiy.
If you can forgive too long pauses and run-on chapter sequences the material is worth it. Maybe, if it is possible, ebook form may be less annoying.
From the begining the narrator sounded as if she was yelling the entire story. When I adjusted the volume, the way she spoke and her intonation still gave the impression of yelling.
I will avoid this narrator from now on.
It was dull and flat.
A very poor retelling of the Scarlet Letter. It had potential; however, it missed the mark on all points.
