    Story
    "Gentile pushover"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the main female character had been a stronger person and not so wishy/washy. If the sex left a little more to the imagination


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

    It seemed rushed, like she just wanted the story done with. Anticlimactic.


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

    I have not. She did a good job her voice is pleasant.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    it was disappointing. Usually Ms Garwood does much better. Ransom is what made me give romance novels another try.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like Julie Garwood, this just wasn't her best effort. Usually her main characters are pretty fearless after coming from tragedy. I will purchase her books again. Every one can't get knocked out of the park every time.

    "I Liked It!"

    This book has all the elements that make up a good Historical Romance story, although the sexual and arguing scenes were a little over the top for me.

    I thought Ann Flosnik did an excellent job. In my opinion she's a good actress and I can't understand anyone giving her negative reviews. Her ability to change her voice, accurately portraying the different characters each time they speak, is truly a gift. It's very hard for a women to sound like one man, much less several different men...and women. A narrator can make or break a story, and Ann Fosnik's performance makes this story.

    "Glad I started with This Book!"

    I am new to Julie Garwood books and I am so glad I started with Gentle Warrior. It is a warm love story with an engaging story line. I plan to listen to it over and over again several times a year. I will also look into more of her stories.

    "Gentle Warrior"
    What did you love best about Gentle Warrior?

    I truely enjoyed the story. The book kept you guessing as to what the outcome might be.


    What other book might you compare Gentle Warrior to and why?

    The Bride - as I feel why they are similar they are also totally different in the story line.


    What about Anne Flosnik’s performance did you like?

    I just truely enjoy Anne Flosnik in all audio books that I've come across


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

    yes, but didn't have time!


    Any additional comments?

    I just enjoy all of Julie Garwood's writings.

    "Good story... DROP THE HORRIBLE READ"
    Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Anne Flosnik?

    ONLY if you drop the performer reading...


    What did you like best about this story?

    I actually loved the story however could not get involved because of the performance...


    How could the performance have been better?

    There is adding drama to reading which is effective then.... the other side...the dark side of OVER DOING IT WHICH DISTRACTS FROM THE STORY...


    Do you think Gentle Warrior needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Sure... JUST GET RID OF AND OR COACH THE PERFORMANCE OF THE READ

    "Julie Garwood has better"

    You will find these characters basically repeated in Garwood's The Prize and The Bride, except their stories are more interesting than Gentle Warrior's. It feels like she wrote this book and later improved upon it.

    "Story line predictable"
    If you could sum up Gentle Warrior in three words, what would they be?

    Not too bad


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

    As I guessed


    How could the performance have been better?

    Need a different narrator . Almost quit several times. Accent was so hokey.


    Any additional comments?

    If you can get past the narration the story was not bad.

    "Loved the Story but the narrator -not so good."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The Story was good. The retelling kind of hard to listen to,


    What did you like best about this story?

    The heroine!


    What three words best describe Anne Flosnik’s voice?

    Her voice was quite masculine even when reading female character's words. It was at times abrasive and hard to listen to.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Good story - read the book....
