Yes, the narrator brings out the emotions in both of the main characters as they interact with one another.
both Isador and Simeon. Isador is a very strong minded woman and yet she doesn't try to get her on way even when she's wrong nor does she try to show that she could take care of herself even though she can, just to prove to him that she could,( you know the type where the female lead is always trying to prove to the male lead that she is as smart or as capable as a man so she tries to prove it anyway she can just to be contrary), and Simeon is alpha male enough to acknowledge that Isidor, is smart and able to take charge of certain things and yet not be intimidated by her strong character so he doesn't try to force her to see things his way and the fact that they both try to compromise enough to see each others view points make me like this story very much.
Yes, she does a good job. I like her voices both male and female. As a matter of fact I prefer her voice to that of Rosalyn Landor, because, Ms. Landor's male characters sound like some old stodgy uncle or grandpa and the same with the female characters, the voices of the female character sound to me that of an old aunt or a grandma's voice, stiff and too low to be a young woman's voice. I love listening to Susan Duerden's character voices she acts out the emotions of each one of her character and you can hear it in her voice. I am very pleased with her narration. I wish she would do more of these. I always listen again and again to the stories she narrates, she makes the stories enjoyable to listen to.
Yes, I like how Isidor and Simeon declared their love for each other, it made me cry.
Aside from the subplot of the stuffed up toilets, which wasn't to my liking at all, I don't know how the author came up with that type of scenario for the two main characters to get together, if one ignores those parts that mention it, this was a pretty good story.
narrator can't do cordelia's voice, she sounded like an old lady
Heroine has too much angst, she's not a likable character.
The author killed off one of the best characters in the series! I don't like how this story has gone nor where it's going! looks like I won't be buying any more books by this author!
Not with this narrator~
She sounds like my grandma! OMG! the characters sound like senior citizens not young men and women in the prime of their life!
It makes me mad that the publishers do not look into their narrators before they decide to sign them up to read the book! It's not worth listening to! Get the books and might as well read them yourself!
The scene where both katalakis brothers were willing to sacrafice themselves for each other without the other's knowledge
I don't feel that Amy was the ideal mate for Fang, she wasn't worthy of him, the fact that she was so immature and not think over the consequences of her actions is very telling. I mean when both brothers were willing to sacrifice themselves for love of each other, she was willing to sacrifice Fang's family, just so she can have him for herself,(when she tried breaking him out of Sarbitar's prison) and when she knows she makes a mistake, rather than own that mistake she lashes out in anger instead ( this was when she tells Fang she can take care of herself, even though she was out numbered 3 to one with the enemy wolves, when she was in their territory) I repeat,she is not the right woman for Fang, as a third example, is rather than be happy that Fang's family accepts her as his mate, she still longs for her MOTHER"S approval, even though she knows her mother hates Fang. If not for the fact that I like that the brother's look out for each other despite their anger over what happened between them you can still feel that love and caring, as family their bonds are still strong, this book is not worth the credit I spent for it. As I said, 'AMY IS NOT THE RIGHT MATE FOR FANG!"
It's not the typical "Horror" story in which the main characters just try their best to get out of the zombies' way and stay alive, etc...the usual cliche..this one has lots of action and lots of suspense and a pretty good story line. I was really surprised!
It depends on the story and how each character is portrayed. I like some of Lisa Kleypas books, but sometimes her stories and characters are a hit or miss with me.
I liked the hero he's all that you would want for the main character.
The heroine acts like a "Mother Teresa" with her charitable works and yet she can't bring herself to be understanding and considerate and at least try to reconcile with her husband when he wanted to start over with her and their marriage. Heroine's character not very appealing.
The characters and the story itself has a lot of substance!
She captures everyone's character and acts it out in her voice impressions of them.
The ending was too short and rather abrupt after the rising tension of the last two chapters, to my consternation it just felt rushed at the ending. As I reached the end of the book, my thoughts were, 'huh, that's it?' I felt the author rushed the last chapter just to end it perhaps to reach a published deadline? I felt it was lacking in someway.... I listened to the first book at least four times just waiting for this second book to appear and when it did appear on audible, I started on the first book again from start to end and then went on to the second book. but with the second book at the ending I felt I didn't want to listen to this book again just yet perhaps because there were some loose ends that weren't addressed in the story but I know it would be addressed in the third book. Aside from this gripe, I really loved these two books and can't wait for the third installment!
Why did they have a different narrator?! I don't know about this narrator.. she doesn't read as if there is life in her characters its like she's just reading the paragraphs in a monotone voice..she barely act out the characters in her voice...why didn't they get Ms. McNab to read this story?!
I thought this would be a keeper. I'm almost at the end of the book about the 11th chapter and I'm about the end of my patience! LILY IS AN IDIOT!!! She knows the hero loves her right in the middle of the book and yet she keeps her issue from him until this chapter!NO..... the author TRIES MY PATIENCE.!! I thought Derek Craven was suppose to be this underworld figure that should know whats going on in the ton and in the underworld slums.. so why can't he find the child's kidnapper? What's up with that?!! And after all that hype about Derek's supposed power in the underworld it took ALEX to find the child!Why did Ms. Kleypas make the kidnap issue last as long as TWO YEARS?! Why not three to six months and later meets with the Hero while trying to find her child, then the story goes from there...? Its such a stupid subplot that I want to throw my ipod across the room that's how stupid it was! BLECCCCH! I"m going to return this, what a waste of my time!
