    "Okay"
    Would you listen to Hidden again? Why?

    I would listen to it again if I was really, really, really bored.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hidden?

    Nothing really.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Rudd’s performances?

    I guess I will if she reads the next two books that I already purchased, but I would rather not. When I first began listening I thought it was a computer reading program. It was that bad.

    I may have enjoyed the book more if someone else had performed it.


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

    No.

    "Great Beginning to a Promising New Series!!!"
    Where does Hidden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to several audiobooks and I have to say Hidden is one of my favorites so far. The author draws you into the story with well defined characters and an interesting plot. I read a lot and there's always a few things in a book that are a little annoying but not to much in this book.


    What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

    I thoroughly enjoyed Kate Rudd's performance! She is one of the few narrators that I have really enjoyed listening to. She made the story come to life and didn't have annoying male and female voices that tend to detract from the story. Hers were all well done.

    "Good story, bad narration"
    If you could sum up Hidden in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, Crime, Romance


    What other book might you compare Hidden to and why?

    Some of Sharon Sala's mysteries


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She has a flat, brash voice, no differentiation for character, and she mispronounced "Willamette" every time she said it. It rhymes with 'dammit,' not 'brunette.'


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not especially... it was like watching a crime drama on TV: fun, interesting, complex, but not exactly life-altering.

    "More romance novel than thriller.."
    Would you try another book from Kendra Elliot and/or Kate Rudd?

    The performance was fine and I have no issues with the way that Kate rudd narrates. I would probably not chose another book by Kendra Elliot again.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    None. I found the descriptions of the characters to stretched and their actions too far from reality for me to be convinced.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    If you're really into romance novels you will like this one.

    What disappointed you about Hidden?

    If you're looking for a mystery, don't look here. Poor characterization, poor writing, and a plot that reads more like a bodice-ripper than a mystery.

    "Liked the story ALOT ~ not crazy about the narrato"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes ~ anyone who loves good suspense will enjoy this book.


    What other book might you compare Hidden to and why?

    A Tess Gerrittsen or Karen Rose is who I think the supense most closely resembles, but heavier on the romance than in the Tess Gerrittsen. But pretty gritty deets, and lots of flashes into the killers mind like in a Karen Rose book. I love that! Give you chills! The tone of this book is pretty serious & intense, and again I'd have to compare that to a Karen Rose.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I felt she was very...stilted? Is that the right word? Like her words weren't flowing naturally, and her pauses and inflections weren't in the right places. Her voice was pleasant, and thought she did a great job diferentiating between male and female, but the flow of the story just wasn't as seamless as I thought it could have been. It goes to tell how truly good the story itself was that I stuck with even I wasn't crazy about the narration.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but it truly tugged my heart in several places, and I felt like with a better narrator I would proabably have reacted stronger. There heroine had truly been through hell in her life, and there were moments noone could have not ached inside for her.


    Any additional comments?

    Just that I'm listening to the next book in the series, Chilled, and it's a new narrator, and I'm already enjoying it so much more.

    "Narrator mispronounces place names"
    Where does Hidden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Hidden is about in the middle of the pack. I have listened to far worse and far better. Nice story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Harper, just like him.


    What three words best describe Kate Rudd’s voice?

    Not varied enough. My biggest issue with her narration is that she mispronounces Willamette! Living in Oregon, not Orygone, I am getting tired of the mispronouciations. Especially when this isn't live and someone should have caught the mistake and had her rerecord it! It's Will am it, not Willa met.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My extreme reaction is totally about changing place names and landmarks. I've read and listened to many books and the authors don't change the names. It's just irritating, maybe they have to, or maybe the author was too lazy to research.


    Any additional comments?

    Despite my irritations I would say it is a good listen, if you get on your plan. I wouldn't pay extra for it. Maybe check it out at the library.

    "Good Story if you can get through the narration."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hidden to be better than the print version?

    Not applicable, but probably not. The narrator of this book was not good.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Rudd?

    Terrible.

    "Narrator Ruins Novel"
    What did you like best about Hidden? What did you like least?

    The story was OK. The narration was robot voice horrible.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Happy ending.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Rudd?

    Anyone! It was generally read like those pre-programmed robot voice programs with no emotion, words miss-timed, strange pauses, no regard for punctuation.
    Another book in this series was read by a man and it was very good so don't write off the series if you had the misfortune to listen to this narrator.


    Could you see Hidden being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.

    "Made for TV Movie"

    This would have been a classic 80s TV movie, it played out very much like a daft, not so scary thriller. A skeleton is found in the foundations of a house that the builder has a link to. One of the victims that got away is now being targeted but she'd already got the murderer incarcerated, didn't she?
