"Kate Hood's delivery is energetic and fast paced. Her characterizations bring an edgy realism to Morrissey's rugged cast. When Sally finds her perfect man, Hood is all fuzzy coquettishness, and when he turns out to be not so perfect, her voice drips with disillusionment. Hood's expressive interpretation adds substance to Morrissey's romantic adventure." (AudioFile)
This is my first book by this author. I found it to be vividly written and the content very engrossing. The writer makes the reader feel as though they are actually in the outback country. Great story. The orater has the perfect voice and is able to keep the listener in touch with each character.
I have become a fan of Di Morrissey's books and to date Barra Creek has to be my absolute favourite.
I'm not convinced she does romance well but having suspicions regarding the male romantic leads in hind sight probably created more believability and impact to the story.
Half way through I thought to myself what can Di Morrissey do to create a memorable story rather than one that was just easy to listen to and I must say she delivered.
Well worth listening to.
This was a great book. The narrator read it well and you really felt like you knew the characters by sight. The Bay was one of my favourites but this one is up there with it.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
This was a great book. The narrator read it well and you really felt like you knew the characters by sight. This is my first Di Morrissey book I look forward to others written by her.
I read Tears of the Moon and then listened to Kimberley Sun. Barra Creek is written in a similar style but I really enjoyed the fact that this book eventually brought the main characters together eventually. I am really hooked on Di Morrisey's writting even though I am South African.
This is the first Di Morrisey book that I have listened to and it certainly wont be the last. The storey had me hooked from the beginning, I couldn't predict what was going to happen and I found it thoroughly enjoyable to listen too. No in depth thinking or anything for me, but just a nice book with a great storyline. The narration was good, I liked the different voices etc, but sometimes the 'put on' aboriginal accents and the high pitched New Zealand accent got a little irritating. This did not detract from the book though, and I would still listen to a book by this narrator again.
