I can't believe that Audible inventories a recording of SUCH POOR QUALITY to be completely impossible to listen to. I know that this is not recorded by Audible but there should be a warning that the audio quality is very low.It sounds like they got Amy Irving (who is not a good reader) on the phone to record this.
This story starts out with a terrible tragedy. Spencer must have lost someone she was close to in order to have described great mourning in such detail. In a paper book, you can skim over parts that are hard to handle, but in audio, you are stuck with every grueling and painful detail. However it's a beautiful book, a great romance, and an interesting description of life within the religious order. In my opinion, it's better than books with the tragedy at the end.
Something was wrong with the sound equipment. I couldn’t understand many of the words. I think the narrator was good, but I couldn’t hear her. I had to stop listening. I assume it was a good story.
Soooo disappointed that this audio book is recorded so poorly it sounds like the narrator is in an echo chamber. When I finally gave up after 20 minutes, my ears literally hurt! Seems to me we should be able to count on a certain level of listening ease. I beg you not to waste your money on this one. (The story is a great one - I've read the book. This recording, however,....unbearable.)
This was the most sad, then the most beautiful love story I have read or listened to in a long time; probably ever listened to or read! I recommend this highly if you like sad and beautiful love stories!
I first read this book years ago when it was newly written. I loved it then. It's a beautiful story of love and loss. I have read it a few times through the years, and I cry and smile each time. The characters are so well written, and I feel like I know and love Sister Regina and Eddie by the end of the story.
My only complaint is the recording of the story is poor. I don't love the way Amy Irving reads the story, and the sound is crackly and difficult to hear. Even with these difficulties, I loved listening to this old favorite.
The sound on this is horrible - DO NOT WASTE A CREDIT!
Make the sound better
If the sound was improved
I do not know - you couldn't make out what they are saying...
I should be able to return this for a credit!
The narration was of poor quality. Very hard to understand. Narrator did not portray each character as in other books that I have listened to.
I read this book a long time ago and that is why I choose it. Loved the story.
After nine surgeries on my brain and looking at a tenth, audio is the choice for me to feel whole again. I am myself in the world of books!
This is a special book that's sad, warm, funny, and sweet all rolled into one. It pulls you into the story and you start to feel for the family and want them to be happy.
