I've listened to many books and don't know if I can rank it, but I can give it an A for Amazing.
Even though he was in it for just a minute, I'd have to say it was Nestor. He was so funny and I loved the way he was voiced. Very campy and I could see him very clearly in my mind's eye.
Bravo, Mr. Brooke. He has a talent for characterizations and accents. He gives very distinctive voices to each person and makes them very real.
I loved this book when I read it, but hearing it made me happy and sad. I laughed out loud while listening at work, and at some parts would have cried if I weren't afraid that my makeup would run or my co-workers would ask me a million questions as to why I was so upset.
I am so happy that such a great book and talented narrator were teamed up. That hasn't happened with many of the audiobooks I've listened to lately. I hope Dreamspinner has more work for Peter and that other books by Mr. Mayne are in audiobook format.
Way up there...
When they saved Sylvia.
I didn't hear Arthur's voice in my head, but Tyler's rendition is perfect. He does a wonderful job telling this story.
Many of Stanley's experiences mirrored my own. Not all of them good. They took me back to some very vulnerable times that I would not want to repeat. I certainly laughed out loud but teared up some, too.
John Inman has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I hope that his entire catalog of stories become available through Audible. With good narrators of course.
Cute, funny, touching.
The Men of Smithfield: David and Seth. Both stories involve an uncle raising a niece because of the absence of the sister - one was a deadbeat mom and the other passed away. Both men are leery (sp) of entering into another relationship because of a bad one. They both love and want the best for their nieces, but are a bit clueless on how to go about some things. Also, initially, Seth and Hank looked down on Justin and David because of pre conceived notions.
The scene where Hank was explaining the concept of Turkey in the Snow to Justin.
This is another classic Amy Lane and I loved it as usual. This is also only the second book I have listened to narrated by Gomez Pugh. Hear this authors. If you want your stories to sell, hire this man. He was perfect. I am looking forward to listening to more books narrated by him. Ohmygah!
I really like how honest and brutal Austin could be. He didn't pull any punches and gave as good as he got. I also appreciate the fact that he stuck to his guns no matter what anyone thought.
This is hard. I love Rabbit, Austin and Nikolai. They each have their own endearing quality.
He was wonderful with the accents and snark.
It saddened me a bit because each character had his own hardship. Even though Austin was brought up in a wealthy family, he was basically blackmailed into being someone he was not. He also grew up with the knowledge that his own mother had no love for him and his father really didn't either. That messes with you no matter how much money you have.
The other young men had each other to love at least. I laughed out loud many times and could have cried, but didn't.
I know that the author had some health issues that prevented the writing of the sequel, but I hope that all is well and we get to revisit these characters soon.
Yes. The story is rather unique. It kinda grabs on and doesn't let go. I read the story when it first came out and forgot how much I liked it. Listening adds a new dimension and brings the story to life.
All of JCP's other books. Dark, gritty, and suspenseful.
This is the first time but hopefully not the last. I love his version of Lisa. His Jacob voice is scintillating.
Yes. It's rather short so it was easy to do.
I hope that the entire series is going to be in audio book format - soon.
Scarlet and Claudia. They are so strong and loving. I love the way they interact with the boys.
Yup. Stellar as usual.
I'm waiting with baited breath for the next one.
I am a bit on the fence about Ms. Sherwood' s books. They seem to get bogged down by too many storylines. The characters aren't very likable IMO and I honestly bought it for Mr. Brooke' s narration. The audio book producers pulled a fast one, though. They switched narrators in the middle of the story and then switched back to Peter. I thought I was imagining things, but I went back an re-listened. ????
None. I love his voice and was quite perturbed when they switched him out for someone else. I wish he narrated more m/m.
It's lengthy. Not sure I could listen to a similar story for this long.
No more bait and switch please.
A resounding yes. This is such a feel good story. It has the right mixture of angst, humor, and erotic elements. I wish everyone would listen to it.
The apparent love and respect that everyone had for Ethan.
I don't think I could rename it. The title is perfect.
I don't normally read tearjerkers but I couldn't ignore this book. I don't know why I deigned to listen to it at work. There were many a scene where I reached for my tissue box. I haven't been moved by a story in a very long time. Initially, I didn't know if the narrator was the right choice. I am happy to say that he is. Mr. Kelly did a wonderful job. He evoked so much emotion from me and I consider that a job well done. Bravo Ms Loveless. I wish there was a sequel.
There is so much going on in these books. Sometimes I get whiplash trying to keep up. The narrator helps by giving each character a distinct voice. I really like Mr. Tremblay.
As in any good whodunit, Ms. Ford keeps the reader guessing. So many characters have motives, but until the end, you don't know who the perpetrator is.
Yes. If anything, he's solidified his performance and made the characters his.
Scarlett. I would like to find out her beauty secrets :-)
Number 3 - Bring it.
I'm not sure.
The main characters were bit TSTL IMO. Parker was too much of a doormat and let his 'best friend' walk all over him. Not a fan of this particular trope. Ivan was supposedly a smart cop who let himself be railroaded into an assignment that a rookie would have questioned. The story was a bit farfetched and unbelievable for me.
I've listened to other books narrated by Mr. James and because he was new, gave him leeway. I don't think that he's going to change his style. Still to wooden for me with not enough emotion. Even if he was reading my favorite book, I would have to give it a pass.
Too many to mention.
I like K C Burn and will continue to read her stories - every writer has a less than stellar piece of work, but I will only listen if someone else is narrating.
I would like to read the sequel if Ms. Seville writes it. Mr. Smith's narrative skills are not to my taste. He's a bit wooden when emotion is needed an over zealous when things could be toned down. He reads like he was picked on to do it and just wants to get it over with.
It wrapped up ok. I would like to find out how they dealt with life afterward.
A more skilled narrator.
