Publisher's Summary

Mary Elizabeth Potter is a self-appointed spinster with no illusions about love. But she is a good teacher, and she wants Wolf Mackenzie's son back in school. And after one heated confrontation with the boy's father, she knows father and son have changed her life forever.

Still paying for a crime he didn't commit, Wolf Mackenzie has a chip on his shoulder the size of Wyoming. But prim-and-proper Mary Elizabeth Potter doesn't see Wolf as the dangerous half-breed the town has branded him. Somehow she sees him as a good, decent, honest man. A man who could love....Wolf's not sure he, or the town of Ruth, Wyoming, is ready for the taming of Wolf Mackenzie.

    "a great book, but terrible abridgement"

    I read the print version of this book several years ago, loved it, and was looking forward to revisiting it in the audio version, but was very disappointed. The abridgement is one of the worst that I've encountered (major and significant events and characterization missing, story changed), and the narration for the main female character was particularly annoying (poor accent, odd pitch). I suggest enjoying a print copy of this book in order to get the background for the series (and it is a great story), and then listening to the rest of the series in audio.

    "FOLLW THE BOOK"

    I enjoyed listening to this book having read the book several times I can say that it does not follow the story. There is at least one chapter missing the epiloge. Scenes in the book are not mentioned at all. Important facts gone. Everything goes along okay but some of the facts are totaly wrong.

    "good and bad"

    I love the story. It's a typical romance that girls love. However, I think the unabridged version would have been much better, because feelings between the hero and heroine developed too quickly in the abridged version. I only give it 2 stars because of the narrator. It sounds as though she is yelling the story to you. She also does not always demonstrate the correct emotion of the characters, so it doesn't sound right. I really love the story, but the narrator ruined it for me.

    "Sentimental Favorite"

    This is a sentimental favorite for Linda Howard fans. I'd love to see this rerecorded unabridged with someone who can sound more convincing as patriarch and original alpha male Wolf Mackenzie. Recording Howard's A GAME OF CHANCE would complete the series.

    "The first in the Mackenzie series"

    Overall, an ok read/listen. It seems a bit outdated just by the nature of the plot, the description of the heroine and the air of aloofness and implied savageness of the hero. After the first 20 minutes it becomes more tolerable and a more appealing book. The story sets the foundation for the remaining stories of the individual "mackenzie's" which get better and better.

    "An enjoyable read"

    This is a very entertaining book. The main charactor, Mary is however slightly stupid, but still fun to listen to. The narator has a horrible voice so I only gave it 3 stars. Her voice can be hard to listen to as her version of a southern accent is horific at best. If you can concentrate on the words and not her voice you will enjoy the book.

    "Abridgement Ok for me."

    There was a specific scene that I didn't like in the book, and with this abridgement it cut it out completely. It was a little stilted but what do you expect from such a short abridgement. If you go in it with out a lot of expectation you won't be disappointed.

    "Mackenzie"s Mountain"

    I read the print vesion of this book and really loved it, and was looking forward to the audio versionl. The abridged version was a little disappointing. The narraton would have been better if it had been more the alpha male that would remind you of what wolf mackenzie would sound like. This is a great series so don't let this detour you from reading this series. I would also like to see the unabriged version of A Game Of Chance. Also a great book.

    "Narrator Too Sharp, Biting"

    The story is okay. A typical romantic suspense by Linda Howard. The first of a series. Abridged, so some scenes are left out -- mostly love scenes -- which is fine with me. An unpleasant listening experience. Savard's voice is too sharp. An angry, biting tone permeates too much of the time. It applies to the narrator as well as the character dialogue. Even when a character is supposed to sound contemplative, Savard sounds sharp. Some scenes were okay. I suppose I may be sensitive to sharp tones.

    "Not a bad story but a BAD narrator."
    What disappointed you about Mackenzie's Mountain?

    These are very short stories in this series. However, even though I do wish this would have been longer, if it were in my power I would change the Narrator. There were parts where the character was raising his voice but more out of frustration than anger. I feel like all the narrator did was just make it sound like yelling... Not a successful performance in my opinion.


    Would you recommend Mackenzie's Mountain to your friends? Why or why not?

    If they are looking for a quick read maybe. However, due to the poor performance I wouldn't want them to spend their money on this, even though it wouldn't be much.


    How could the performance have been better?

    If the author were to rerecord using the narrator from the second and third book in the series. I would even recommend the book. (Sorry I'm not even saying much about the story. What stuck with me the most was the poor narrating, I'm sorry to say.)


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mackenzie's Mountain?

    Im not too sure. Maybe added a few chapters.
