I very much enjoyed both reading this book - and later listeniing to the performance in the audibook. The author has a wonderful dry wit! And the narration is on-target. I very much hope the next books in the series are available soon.
Jayne Castle, sure. Rosenblat, nope.
Have someone else read the story.
Oh, heck no. She sounds like she's trying to do a William Shatner impression. It's horrible.
I like the story fine - I'm sure if I'd just read the book, I would have enjoyed it. I generally enjoy Jayne Castle (Krentz) stories. But the narration just kept pulling me out of the story and it was hard to pay attention ... I kept picturing Shatner mockingly reading a romance novel.
I normally grade Castle's stories at a 3.5 - 4.0. If I could actually pay attention to the story, I probably still would. This narration is making me crazy, though.
Between the narrator's stilted reading and the first-person, present-tense writing style, I'm afraid I just couldn't finish this audiobook.
I love this author, and if first-person, present-tense doesn't bother you, the general story was intriguing - as far as I was able to listen to it. Who knows, maybe if I was reading this in print, or if it were a different narrator, I could have finished.
I was very disappointed.
