The writing mostly. The grammar could have been better , but just her over all fluidity needs a lot of work.
The funny thing is that on Marlon Braccia's Voice page she mentions this style as being..articulate. Which is very ironic because she was anything but. She mumbled several times, slurred words together and there were even points where I just could not understand what shew as saying no matter how many times I listened.
I think this could have been a very entertaining book without the glaring problems with the writing and reader. It's really a shame I was looking forward to this.
I would but not in audible form. The book has some juvenile sentences and word choices but overall, the story is a good one. The narrator ruined the experience for me with mistakes and dead air and repeated sentences and paragraphs. It was hard to listen to the whole book but since I paid for it, I suffered through it. Good thing Book 2 has a different narrator or I would forego this whole series in audible form.
The storyline was fresh and attention grabbing.
Anybody. She did not do a good job at all. She drops letters and words, loses her place, repeats sentences and sometimes whole sections of paragraphs and just made listening to this book pure torture.
With a different narrator, maybe. With this lady reading it, I feel like it was a waste of my time and money.
Quality control in audible books is usually really good. Mispronounced words are usually the worst mistake you hear. This book sounds like it was being read to a child and recorded by a child.
I loved this book, it's actually the first one I've read by Willow Rose, however the reader did it no justice. She would be better off with the children's books. I ended up reading the actual book because I wanted to finish it but couldn't stand the sing song voice any longer.
This book was just not the right tone for the narration, it put me to sleep, twice. I wish I had not downloaded it. But it cost me nothing, so nothing gained and nothing lost. Try it , though, many have liked this book and so you may like it also.
Resides in Elkton, M.D. (but my heart belongs in Upstate, N.Y.)
Definitely, a nice change from your regular Gore/ whodunit/. Interesting light reading with all of the psychological twists that someone like me needs to keep me interested!
That's hard to say... when he ate his mother?/ or the pastor gets his...
No, she's ok, a bit monotone for my liking.
The description of the rape.
Keep them coming Willow, I'm hooked!!!!! 😁
Main problem was the distracting lack of editing of the narration. Again and again, sentences or even single words were repeated.
And so much evil, conspiracies with no background setup, with just references to a creepy religious sect.
I did actually like the characters but they were wasted in this far-fetched story. And the main character (Emma) twie
