    "Entertaining"

    I'm a huge fan of Nora Roberts' work although this book disappointed me. I had figured out how this book would end shortly after the first chapter began. I would have liked the story to have more substance to it, but none the less, it was entertaining.

    I did not like the narrator for this story. Although she has a very nice voice, it was not suited for this type of literature. She has a very child-like sounding voice, which was fine for the children’s voices, but not so for the adult male and female voices. Her narration of the main male character was flat and made him sound dull and disinterested.

    Buy this audio book only if you want a quick "read" and don't mind having a child-like voice read a romance story to you.

    "Charming but . . ."

    This story was absolutely charming. However, the reader's little girl voice was distracting at best. It made it a little hard to focus on the story.

    "Narrator Too Young"

    I was in the mood for a quick audio fix, short, cheap and fun. I figured Nora Roberts, less than 3 hrs, was a good bet. Unfortunately, there were no reviews and the sample wasn't working. How bad could it be?

    Bad. Real bad. While downloading, I perused reviews for other books by this narrator and was dismayed to see how many people commented on how young the voice of this narrator sounds.

    Yep. It's creepy to have a 10-yr-old read a romance to you, even when the romance part is fairly subtle. Very creepy. I don't recommend it. I did listen all the way through but was cringing every time the hero dipped his head for a kiss, or had any thoughts about the heroine at all, because that Girl Scout narrator's voice just did not set the right mood. I kept wondering if her mother knew she said those things.... (LOL)

    Her intonations and reading were mediocre as well - hopefully they'll find a better narrator or Ms. Davis's voice will mature and she'll learn how to read aloud better.

    The story itself might be sweet but frankly, with audio books, I just can't get past a bad narration.

    "Read by a child?"

    I could not listen to this audio book because the read sounded like she was 10. I just couldn't get into the book because I felt like a child was reading it.

    I love listening to books from Audible and reading them from Amazon as well. I also love listening to music. I am presently reading" Buying the Farm" my only regret with this book is that I didn't get the the Audible Edition as well.

    Story
    "WAS TOTALLY INTO THE STORY AND GETTING DEEPER INTO"
    Would you listen to All I Want for Christmas again? Why?

    I Hope so, because I never got farther than the middle because my book like many others did not down load completely. I spoke with a representative of Audible's he promised to call me back and did not. Did anyone else have these problems?


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was sounding very good, and I wanted to trade a few for CDs I could listen to on my player at home. No one at audible suggested that solution.


    What about Lauren Davis’s performance did you like?

    I very much liked her voice.

    "Not Bad"

    It is not a bad story. It was short and quick. If you are looking for a quick story then this may be for you. I felt like it was a book for young adults or children. If you are a serious romance reader then this is not the book for you. If you are looking for a quick read then you may be okay to get this in and done. It is predictable, boy gets girl which is okay if the story is well developed.

    The narrator is not the best, although I have certainly heard worse.
    The story didn't have much substance. It's a short book. It was one of Nora's earlier works yet some of her earlier works are pretty good. Usually I am okay if I am entertained. This one entertained me a little. What saves this one to me is it was fairly cheap so I don't feel cheated. If I paid more than a few dollars and/or used a credit I would have been more disappointed.

    Story
    "I usually enjoy Nora Roberts but..."

    The narrator was impossible. I thought a nice sweet Christmas romance would be fun while I did some holiday decorating, except that it sounded like it was narrated by a child. There were times that I couldn't shake the mental image of kiddy porn as this childlike voice narrated romantic scenes. Lauren Davis would be fine as the child in an ensemble cast, or to read a children's book, but she doesn't fit the bill for a romance that has any level of sexiness at all.

    "MEDIOCRE"

    I was looking for entertainment, but this book proved to be predictable and in my opinion not worth my time or money. I wish it had some twists and turns, but I knew from the first chapter what the end would be. Nora disappointed me.

    Story
    "Terrible Voice For Narration"
    What disappointed you about All I Want for Christmas?

    The girl who narrated this story sounds like she is 12 years old, if not younger. She does great voices for the kids, but she is the wrong choice for this story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was heart warming and it is a happy ending.


    What didn’t you like about Lauren Davis’s performance?

    She sounds like she is 12 years old. It felt really wrong to be listening to a child, especially during the sex scene.


    What character would you cut from All I Want for Christmas?

    I wouldn't cut a character, i would make the father more love-able though. The whole time, you wanted to smack some common sense into him.

    Story
    "Merry Christmas"

    Setting: Maryland, contemporary
    Genre: Sweet holiday romance
    Typical early sweet-romance Nora, with laughs and tears. The protagonists are relatively well-rounded for a short story. There are nice people as the backdrop, and there's no villain. The twins, serving as the impetus of the action, are sweet little caricatures. I do wish this had been part of an anthology, but that's my thought on any of the stories I'm reading this season.
