Story wise - among the upper third - narrator around the middle. I had the pleasure of reading this book when it was originally written as a fan fiction and Darhower does not disappoint when it comes to Sempre. The narrator did well with the voices and different Chicago accents but she wasn't very fluid. It sometimes felt like she was reading the text for the first time. Part of the reason I love audiobooks is so that I can get lost in the story - if I can hear the narrator almost stumble over a sentence, or over enunciate in an unnatural speech pattern, it takes me out of the scene of the story.
I love Haven but Demetri is awesome, and can't help but fall a little in love with Nick. Haven is obvious because she is the female lead, beat but not defeated! She won't be broken and I love how she is so literal. As for Demetri, he is so warm and personable he is an easy character to connect with. Nick, i just love his corny jokes!
does it count if I hyphenate it? .... clear, over-enunciated, characterized
I loved this book, when I knew it was getting to a part that was going to be emotional I would hold off because I didn't want to get there yet. I can't wait for the sequel to come out!!
By no means was this a bad listen, I have just had the pleasure of listening to hundreds of audiobooks with some AMAZING narrators like Carolyn McCormick and Amanda Ronconi. As a result, I have become much pickier. I could get through the book and enjoy it - that is a damn sight better than the narrator for Fifty Shades - i stopped listening to that book 10 minutes in because her voice alienated the characters and storyline.
