The story was interesting enough, even though it was a little too hard to believe, but I hated the female reader's interpretation of the male voice. He sounded like a robot; more like my GPS system than a sexy male human. It's a struggle to get through.
I found it boring. The narrator was OK but the whole book was just boring.
It was funny at times but annoying most of the time. I think the author went way too far. I couldn't even pretend that most if could happen. It was uncomfortable and fake.
I have hundreds of audible books but this is the first one I read by Catherine Bybee. I'm pleased that now I have a new author that I really like. What I enjoyed the most was that the characters were very well developed, believable and likeable. The plot wasn't overdone. It was a very enjoyable read. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could give half stars. There were a couple of situations that were just a little unbelievable, but the fact that there were only a couple is really surprising. I recommend it and look forward to reading more by this author. The narrator is right on. She did a fantastic job with male and female voices. That's important to me.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's well written, well read and set in a magical time gone by. I also appreciated the length. So many good stories are short. This story never lost my interest. I would definitely recommend this book.
This was just a little too far-fetched for me. Not the usual substance in earlier Nora Roberts stories. Kate Rudd's narration was not enjoyable. I wanted to like the book but her male voice was drone and bland. I wouldn't recommend it if you want an interesting story.
This story was charming, loving, funny, and sad all In one. This was the best Kate Rudd narration I've listened to. I've listened to 3 others. The narration was right on. I felt that John Green went a little overboard with his handling of the Dutch author (don't want to do a spoiler), but overall, I've read it twice now. I fell in love with the characters from the start. I would highly recommend this book.
I usually love Nora Roberts books. This combined with Kate Rudd's narration sounded like a dream but it was very irritating and disappointing. Of course we know how these stories will end but the way the author gets there is what makes it interesting. Nora Roberts wrote scenes that I want to call "stupid". I kept thinking "Oh Come On". Yes they have to have a fight but can it be more realistic? I started skipping ahead and it's already short.
Give the reader some credit. If I was a teacher I would say this was put together quickly just to beat the deadline.
One of the reasons I bought this book was because I loved Kate Rudd's narration in The Fault in Our Stars. I didn't enjoy this narration at all. I wish she had used her own natural voice for the female and I hated the male voice.
I wouldn't suggest purchasing these short stories. They're a disappointment and not really worthy of 3 stars.
I was excited to see another Robyn Carr story but this was too unbelievable to even fantasize that it could be real. On top of that it was actually predictable. Very disappointing.
Therese Plummer is an excellent narrator. Her narrating is the best part of the book.
First there's too much anger and not even justified, just anger. I don't listen to these books to get into an angry place. Then you have to wonder why the main character is acting like a jerk for too long. I didn't enjoy the first hour enough to listen to the whole book. The narrator was fine, the story was just pathetic.
I gave this book a low rating because I hated the way the male characters were performed and the females were only a little bit better. What I enjoy about this type of book is the characters and the narrator. The males all sounded like they were very old and the lead male was even garbled. I kept falling asleep and never even felt like listening to the end. I was very disappointed with the experience.
