    "CAGA-UK"

    This is the first time I have been compelled to write a review because I loved this audio book so much. It was funny, romantic and sad and it left me completely drained. I listened to it virtually non-stop because I had to know the ending. This is the first, but not the last, Jude Deveraux book iv'e listened to and I'm looking forward to listening to many more. I have eclectic taste in books, from Christine Feehan, Christina Dodd, Brenda Joyce, Megan Hart, Nora Roberts,Kerrelyn Sparks and Johanna Lindsey.

    In my opinion, this book is well worth the credit.

    Story
    "Not worth the read or the listen."
    Would you try another book from Jude Deveraux and/or C. J. Critt?

    Not likely


    Has Legend turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of C. J. Critt’s performances?

    NO


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Legend?

    Most of them.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is juvenile, not true to the periods (clash of language and slang). The dialog is just plain stupid. The story drags on and on and really didn't make me want to rush to my car to listen every commute. The performance is weak. The narrator doesn't have a good command of male vs. female voices and Cole sounded like a light footed, limp wristed wimp.

    Story
    "It was okay."

    I have this in hardcover -- I bought it and read it when it first came out. I loved the story just as much as then, but wasn't thrilled with the narrator. I envisioned 30 year old Katie with a younger, perkier, more innocent sounding voice. While C.J. Critt does a great job, her voice just sounds far too old and too refined, like some glamorous movie star from the 40s or something. It just didn't fit the character. Therefore, I didn't like the audio as much.

    "AWFUL!!"

    I have always enjoyed Jude Deveraux stories, however, the narrator of this book is terrible. She has ruined the story and makes it unbearable to listen to. : (

    "Legend"

    This is the second Jude Deveraux book I have purchased on Audio. Did not enjoy this one compared to Days of Gold. Quality of the download was poor, first time I have ever gotten background noice on the audio. I have a libray of over 20 books and do not have this issue with any other book. Was distracted by the narrator of the book and I felt it took a long time to develop the story.

    "Love the book, hate the reader"
    Would you try another book from Jude Deveraux and/or C. J. Critt?

    I read every Jude Deveraux book, but the way the narrator/reader whatever they're called read the book it was obnoxious and took away from the story. I've read this book before and have pictured the main character as a mid 20's a little shy about her size but outspoken in the kitchen character with a sweet voice. The narrator sounds like she's a smoker in her mid 40's.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Coles adorable charm.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Have a different reader whose voice fits better to the character.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Legend?

    None, the book is perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    I won't be buying any audiobooks with the same reader.

    "I do not recommend this book"

    This book bordered on the rediculous. Time travel on steroids. I found it very boring.
