    Story
    "Sea Vixen! Plot optional."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the author had any concept of how to plot a story. A concrete beginning, middle, and ending (preferably a comprehensible one with a main character who makes absolutely 100% implausible decision at the books conclusion) would've been nice. The narrator was all wrong as well since the story focuses predominantly on a male character.


    Has Siren turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, if only because I'm still not at all certain how this ever got published.


    What didn’t you like about Lyssa Graham’s performance?

    She has zero emotional inflection relative to the characters when performing dialogue and I'm honestly not sure a female narrator made sense as the main character was male.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Siren?

    Probably at least half the sex scenes as they added nothing but word count to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    This story was an absolute mess. It was an interesting premise that was extremely poorly executed.

    "I was very surprised!"
    Would you listen to Siren again? Why?

    Yes. I would listen to this book again. I read some of the reviews that blasted the narrator, but I thought she did a good job transitioning between the different characters in the book. It is always nice to have different narrators so you can tell between the different gender characters in the book, but Lyssa Graham did a great job making me believe she was each different characters. Every book isn't for every person. The Siren works for me.


    What about Lyssa Graham’s performance did you like?

    Yes. Lyssa Graham did a great job making me believe she was each different characters in the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I listend to it at work and on my way to work.

    "Plug your ears, ignore the call of the Siren..."

    I would advise against using a credit for this book... it seemed interesting on the face of it, but the story dragged along, there were a couple bright spots, but overall it's quite sleepy.

    From a narration perspective: Just as a personal preference, I actually like more of a performance style reading where genders are represented by male/female voice actors... it could have helped... a little. In general, the narration was monotone and uninteresting... even the racy scenes were delivered without emotion, hard to get into the book this way.

    From a story perspective: The story was very one dimensional, no large scale plot twists or other diversions. I understand that the primary motivation of the main character is grief and depression over the loss of an only child, but the linear fashion of the story make the result very predictable. The interaction with the best friend (who functions in the story simultaneously as the "wise and knowledgeable" subject matter expert on all things Siren, as well as the comic relief) falls flat on it's face, it's like trying to make Yoda a surfer (which would have been more entertaining, I'm telling you!). The story has a bit of gratuitous sex, which I have no problem with, but as I said, it was delivered poorly by the narrator, so even that seemed dull.

    Overall, save your credit... If you like supernatural horror-ish stories, try Richard Matheson's Hell House, I've seen that a lot of reviewers do not like that particular book, but it's leaps and bounds ahead of this.

    "Again with the narrator!"

    I am getting a bit picky with the narrators lately, but with the expense of the audiobooks--they add up and I love audliobooks in general--I really wish the narrators would be chosen more carefully.

    The narrator of this book read in a monotone the whole time. It was nice to listen to it at night when I wanted to sleep because it was soothing, but did not make it easy to follow the story.
    She enunciated clearly and her voice was pitched low enough to not be squeaky, actually a very pleasant voice, but was just too too sleep-inducing.
