This turned out to be a great book, I was pleasantly surprised, yes it was slightly predictable, but worth it. The narrator was great. He read for the entire series and did a fantastic job, his voice was not irritating, or too male for the female parts. I listened to all three volumes and was not disappointed.
I usually enjoy Debbie Macomber books, and this is no exception. As a result of reading the book, we started a Thursdays at Eight group. The book was inspiring to see how strong women and how, with a little support from those we love, we can overcome the odds. I thought the honesty and openness was refreshing. The narrator was pleasant, she has read several of my favorite books and has not disappointed yet.
The Cedar Cove series does not disappoint, I suggest you start form the first volume and keep up with all of the characters. The story is a continuation and leaves you anting more. Debbie cannot write fast enough to satisfy my need to know what is going to happen next. It is not an adventure or action story, but there are mysteries and romance in every book. The narrator is one of my favorites, she makes each characters personality stand out. Debbie introduces different characters and families you have to keep up with, but if you have read the previous stories in the series, the brief refreshers she gives is enough of a refresher to keep up with the story line.
I first was introduced to Cranford by PBS and fell in love with the story. I had never heard of the author but am glad I stumbled upon her. The characters make you fall in love with them and their plot in life. The book is a great period piece that takes you back in time and makes you feel you are sitting in the room, or walking down the lane with them. The narrator made the time fly, her voice is easy to listen to.
This is one of my favorites, and having it on hand all of the time is great. The novel is interesting great characters and the intricate plot. I love the glimpse of late 18th century morals and mentalities, and the way Jane Austen uses irony or sarcasm. Great Author, and the narrator did a good job. An easy listen.
I love the book, but the narrator did not do it justice. I did not care for her lack of individual voices, and her upbeat tone through the book was not appealing. Delilah is a great radio host, but her narration needs work. It made listening to the book less enjoyable. If they redid the narration with someone like Sandra Burr, Andrea Gallo, Linda Emond, Laural Merlington or Tanya Eby it would have been much more enjoyable. There were times when her smiling tone was appropiate, but not throughout the entire book. I listened only because I paid for it and was not sure if I could get a refund. If they re-record the book with a different narrator, I would purchase it again hopefully being able to enjoy it. I listen to all of Debbie's books over and over again, except this one. The story is 5 star, the narration is 1, I split the difference.
This sets the tone for a very great series. I was pleasantly surprised. The narrator was great. He read for the entire series and did a fantastic job, his voice was not irritating nor too masculine for the children or female parts. I listened to all three volumes and was not disappointed.
