I can handle almost any narrator, but this one takes the cake as the worst. All the male voices were made to sound like idiots and all the females came off as just silly. The narration was so overwhelmingly bad the story was completely ruined. The Bride Quartet is a good change of pace to have a Nora Roberts series that stuck straight to the romance, without crime or supernatural (although I enjoy those as well).
How did I miss this little gem? I've had this in my wish list for a while, but didn't notice that Susan Ericksen was the narrator. As usual, her performance is spot on! I was a little disappointed with the conclusion of the book, but only because I wished it had gone on a little more. All the elements were great, the dialogue and scenes were imaginative and described to perfection, however, many of the story lines that are spun don't get wrapped up in most of Nora's novels, High Noon being no exception. However, Nora always makes me laugh, sometimes cry and I would definitely recommend listening to this book!
I really enjoyed Born in Shame as well as the other 2 books in the series. Having a natural Irish voice for a series set in Ireland makes the listening easy and enjoyable & Fiacre Douglas does an amazing job making the story come to life. Nora Roberts does not disappoint in her descriptive writing, as I can picture the main character in all her different surroundings. The romance is not unrealistic; both characters are very believable. Definitely my favorite of the Born in Series.
I enjoyed listening to Joyce Bean narrate so much so that I looked up other titles she has performed. Angels Fall is a good story, but it gets a little lost in the lengthy descriptions of all the main character's issues (paranoia, OCD etc.). The ending is not unexpected, but it is confusing. I'm still not quite sure how it all panned out. Usually Nora Roberts is much more on point with descriptive storylines, but I feel this story fell a little short.
