    "not what i have come to expect"

    Maybe my expectations were too high but i truly didn't enjoy this book as i have the others.

    was it the narator, was it the book? I just don't know.

    Humourous, but not a book I would recommend to read

    "Great book"

    I really loved this book, but I wish they offered the third book in this series Born in Shame. I might have to look elsewhere to purchase it.

    "Roberts romances are realistic"
    Any additional comments?

    A good romance novel for me is one that has believable characters in believable stories. Nora Roberts does this better than most.

    "Annoying narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Perhaps a written copy.


    What didn’t you like about Fiacre Douglas’s performance?

    The narrator rushed through, with halting quality to his performance. When I tried to slow it down, the next slowest speed was too slow. It was quite irritating.

    "Narrator was too quick"
    Would you listen to another book narrated by Fiacre Douglas?

    I really hope Nora does not choose him to read for her anymore, he is too fast,in a hurry, and no emotions don't like him

    "Slow it down!"
    What made the experience of listening to Born in Fire the most enjoyable?

    A good simple story, true to Nora Roberts classic


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narration and audio too fast.. technical??? slowed it down to half speed and it was better


    Any additional comments?

    If you have the ability, like on an Ipod.. slow it down to half speed. Then I could understand it

    "Enjoyable Irish Trilogy"

    I'm not a huge Nora Roberts fan. She's good, but not the best romance writer out there. However, I do find her books enjoyable easy reads. The "Born In" trilogy does not disappoint. I must admit I have a weakness for all things Irish especially the accent so I was willing to overlook the less than stellar narration by Fiacre Douglas on the series. There wasn't much of a difference between character voices and the female characters left a lot to be desired. Fortunately the story and the Irish lilt makes up for most of that. Buy this on sale or if you have some credits burning a hole in your account.

    "Story was slow."
    Where does Born in Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am new to the audio scene so I can't really rank it,


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes the narration matched the pace of the story. Inflections and tones were a little off though.


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book, I am having a hard time with books having only one reader doing all the voices,.

    Story
    "Wish I Could Get Credit Back"
    What disappointed you about Born in Fire?

    Same characters, same plot - independent type woman and the man who may "manage" her. I didn't listen to more than 30% because it was BORING. These books have become long winded Harlequins. The JD Robb series is getting to be the same thing as well.


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stop writing the same thing over and over.


    Have you listened to any of Fiacre Douglas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration was well done and even more so if the accent was acted and not original.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Born in Fire?

    Sent it back and suggested the author find some new personalities and behaviors for the characters. There is a very good author who also teaches and writes about the art. He suggests throwing out at least one third of what a person writes before sending it to an editor.


    Any additional comments?

    Can I have my credit back?
