I love Jessica Almasy and usually enjoy an audiobook if she is the narrator. I was surprised to like this story as much as I did. A fast, fun read that will keep you entertained...worth the credit, in my opinion. You will find yourself giggling at the banter between characters and wishing for your very own Eric.
Really looking forward to book two. I hope they release it in audio format and have Jessica Almasy return as the narrator.
I love to multi-task whenever possible and audible allows me to keep up my voracious reading appetite while doing other things!
This book has been on my wishlist forever. I'm so glad I finally added it to my library. I only wish I had bought it sooner.
The dialog was quirky and funny. The cast of characters you meet are so lovable you will wish for Ms. Abedi to write books for each of them. I spent nearly the entire time listening to this book with a smile on my face.
In the realm of uber-rich, sexy, men with accents Mr. Clayton Sinclair is king. Actually, Lord in this particular case. His courtship of Sophie is like a modern-day fairy tale in the beatific setting of a posh resort in the Maldives complete with $10,000 bottles of Highland whiskey, haute couture, dinner on a yacht, and a private island retreat for two.
It ends with a dreaded cliffhanger and is immediately followed by a snippet of the opening chapter of book two.
Jessica Almasy did a great job with the narration. Her voice came off a bit screechy at times, but I think her voice and style of narration suited the character of Sophie quite well. Her male voices were good as well, and she handled a myriad of accents quite competently. My only issue was that some of Clayton's dialog was hard to hear. I found in situations where his character was speaking quietly, the combination of the accent and the whispering made the last one or two words of a sentence completely drop off to the point of being inaudible. Oh and, I was annoyed by her repeated mispronunciation of the word extraordinary.
Overall, a fun, romantic read. You'll be quick to download Mad Love 2 as soon as you reach the dreaded cliffhanger. Well worth my credit and time!
I enjoyed the story line quite well, but found the volume differences when the narrator was doing sultry,sexy or even some of the British accents was very difficult to hear in my car or normal headphones. This wasn't a problem if I could use my Bose, but quite frustrating, because it was a good story and I wanted to hear all of it!
I habe read the book once and then decided to listen to it. I can say it was an "okay" audio book on mostly all the parts when Clayton speaks the last few words fade out and can't even hear what he says unless your following along with the book. by the way this audio book will not sync up with the kindle book. kinda dissapointed on that part. but other than those two issues its a good book and can't wait for the next book
