I like Christine Feehan's books usually but I found Spirit Bound to be fairly boring most of the way through. Too much repetition in describing characters and their circumstances. I found myself fast forwarding through much of the book. The ending was okay but could have been better I feel.
Not really. I didn't really enjoy all the emotional healing/counceling talk. I suppose I couldn't connect with this aspect of the story. I'm sure others can.
Typical HEA and sweet. Nothing that 'WOW'ed me.
The narrator was a 3 star (meaning: I liked the performance, not 4 stars='really liked' or 5 stars='the best I've experienced'). He was decent and did a decent job on the female voices (I've heard worst).
No. It is not original enough.
Spirit Bound is an enjoyable story with sweet talk that any woman would want to hear from her man. I just don't find the story all that original. Give it a try, you might enjoy it. It wasn't totally unworthy of my credit.
I have listened to this series many times. If you haven't read/listened to the Drake Sisters series, you should. The 2 series are about Sea Haven.
Like others here, I've read all the Sea Haven books and listened to most of them. I really like the male narrator for the Prakenski's and I hope they will continue to use this narrator for the rest of the books. One person commented he didn't do any accents. He used a French accent, a Russian accent and an American accent. He was pretending to be an American for much of the book. I enjoyed his voice very much.
The story itself was also very good and the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because, like most Feehan books, things are repeated endlessly. But it seems to work for her as she sells lots of books, many to me!
The next book, Air Bound, is due out in May, 2014, and I so hope they will use a male narrator. These are the Prakenski brothers books and they are male, very male! Yea!
Just FYI for Audible, I did NOT get the audio book for Water Bound because the sample did not demonstrate her male voices. Some women are pretty good, but others just keep sounding like women. Just unacceptable.
Christine Feehan will capture you and take you for a thrilling, passionate, dangerous, journey.
I honestly can't pick a favorite from this book. I enjoyed it that much.
When the girls laughed because Levi was not invited in.
When Judith knew that Stefan had not left her to be taken by Jean-Claude and the church scene.
I enjoy Christine's work. I've been reading her for years. She's one of the originals!
Many say I am easily entertained because I have given many 5star ratings, but I KNOW what I like, have my favorites, and choose accordingly.
Top 100 around 95 (I have listened to a lot of books!!) Top 10 series.
I love the whole Sea Haven small town feel, the love and care between women who have been through the ringer and understand and love unconditionally. I would LOVE to have 130 acres, by the ocean and share it with people I love.
Not his genre. I liked the sound of his voice, however, he didn't do any accents and everyone sounded alike. I would have loved to hear Alyssa Bresnahan do this series. To me, she is the VOICE of Sea Haven.
I have NO idea. LOL
I am really hoping for a different narrator. I hate putting a narrator down but like I said, this was not Mr. Harvey's type of story. Sorry.
Awesome narrater!!! No way do I have the time to sit & read a whole book so audiobooks are the best, but then to get such a great narrater....very nice!
Nope, first one~. Awesome performance!
Christine - yesDon - no
Not the audio book
The voice was not right for this series. All the guys sounded alike and the girls sounded like guys. When Stefan was talking to Judith I couldn't tell who was who. Additionally, the Russian accent was missing all together. Should have used same narrator from the Drake series to continue the Sea Haven series. I waited for this one and I was soooooo disappointed!!
A better narrator
Yes, I plan to listen to Spirit Bound over and over again. It is so well done. I really enjoyed the story and the narration.
When Stefan first met Judith Henderson and he was so taken with her.
I would if I were driving on a long road trip.
Very good book.
love to read
No, I had read the book first and found it slow. I was hoping the audible book would bring the story to life. but I didn't like the narrator. All of the characters sounded the same.
Yes, I have listened to all of the Sea Haven series as well as Water Bound and I enjoyed them all. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
He didn't bring the characters to life. What I really enjoyed with the other Feehan books was the fact that the narrator gave each character a voice.
Yes, I am not sure who the stars would be.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series with out Don Harvey
