Delightful Easy Listen!
I especially enjoyed the scene when Levi Eaton showed up right on time when Angela confronts her ex fiancé for the 1st time at her cousin's wedding.
Angela was my fav character performed by Corey Allen. His voice and inflections were just right for her. I don't think his voice was deep enough to really capture Levi Eaton's character.
The Eaton's...the Saga continues
The overall story was good, a typical love story; boy meets girl, girl likes boy etc. However, I could not get a grasp on the main characters because they "flip flopped" so much during the story. Additionally, the narrator's tone and voice for the main male character caused him to seem cold and harsh. The story line seemed a little rushed and far fetched at the end, which was in contrast to the slow story line throughout the book.
Yes, I love her writing. She is incredibly imaginative, usually. This book was not a complete flop, but it could have been better. Maybe I was just frustrated by the reader.
NO! He was dry, emotionless, and made me want to stop listening after the first 3 minutes.
about a 7 i love rochelle alers i got all her books
he loved her threw it all
i got use to him he did most of her books
i did, i normally listen to all her books that way there so soo good
A better narrator for this book. The voices he uses for Bryant is so damn hard to listen too. I just couldn't listen pass chapter 2. These are supposed to be African American characters, but yet, he made them sound like white bougies!!
The story sounds good. I just think I would enjoy this better as a hard copy book or e-reader.
Get a female narrator or at least another one.
First time reading or listening to your book and really, really loved it. I was a bit disappointed at the end, the character gave in too easily. It was as if her month of suffering was not worth it, I would have loved an epilogue, to see the end through ( the wedding plan and wedding). Overall the story and writing is beautiful.
I am a fan of Rochelle Alers and the Eaton family and was not disappointed with Levi's story. Corey's reading of this book could have been better but overall, this book was great!
