I just starting listening to this…SO THE STARS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MATERIAL AT ALL….But I had to write the following NOW, because I may never finish the recording…
I am AWESTRUCK that anyone would allow this woman to read this book. Her ONLY interest is in over enunciating. There is no flow, there is no blood, there is no connection between the material and the way she reads it. She sounds like she's reading a historical novel's descriptive sections of what the room looks like that the action is happening in - I don't know how else to put it. "The room was dark and brooding, and had the impending feeling that something evil was about to occur, something that no one was prepared to encounter…" like some B-grade novel….insert those words in her voice and you will understand what I'm talking about. These are interesting facts…demanding a conversational, interesting, changing tone. Not just an unending over-enunciation of a narrative story.
She has one way to deliver sentences of each specific length. Awful…making awkward fits with the material. I just can't believe it. I want to throw it out. I won't listen to it. I'm so sorry…I love the material, so I will buy the book.
It's not about the WORDS….it's about the ideas…please try to make them alive and somewhat interesting. Or WHY should we buy the audible book?
WHY is this so BAD??? I WANT TO RIP MY EARS OFF MY HEAD!! Lol.
My extreme reaction was that I wanted to yell at the narrator, lol.
I feel AWFUL for slamming her…but I'm just being honest. She's just the wrong fit for this book. I might listen to her for a novel, to be honest….but not this material. Buy the book.
