I would try another Kay Hooper book
She sounds old for the age of the characters in the book, lots of strange pauses and I didn't care for her interpretation of the characters. She made the book more boring than it really was.
I enjoyed the story, I just wish it was a better narrator.
Captivating, enthralling, suspense packed, a great ending with a couple of twists. The only criticism i can give this book is that it ended :(
Its always sad when you finish a book you cant put down for the life of you!
Although I enjoyed the storeyline, I'm afraid the narrator took the enjoyment out of the audible experience for me. She kept putting me to sleep with a dull monotone voice. She had a higher pitch for females and lower pitch for males, but all the females sounded alike and the same for the males. I had to keep checking to see who was talking because you just couldn't tell one from another.
I enjoy Kay Hooper books, and the story here wasn't one of my favorites, but still enjoyed it.
Nothing short of another narrator would have helped the performance.
Lots of suspense building, but a little predictable ending.
The tone of her voice never changed. The woman that narrated this story should only be allowed to read hypnosis recordings.
Nothing short of girly twaddle, read by a narrator straight from the cheese factory!
I kept listening as I was short of a decent book to listen to and my favorite authors just can't write fast enough to keep me happy; however, I could barely make it to the last sappy sentence. That's the first and last Kay Hooper book I'm going to listen to and also the last one read by that narrator.
Yes, great narrator and the story had enough suspense to be interesting.
The scene when the characters realize what they were missing in life.
The narrator was entertaining and enjoyable
I would recommend this book for it's content and for the narration
I'm an avid audible book listener. I am a huge fan of supernatural books and like stuff that is scary but well written. I'm from Denver Colorado and I have three sons.
The story lost an awful lot by not having the right narrator. You could hear her breathing and swallowing and her voice was just droning.... I finished the book because the story was good by MY GOODNESS I couldn't wait to not have to hear her voice...
I wouldn't as I can never read, watch or listen to crime stories more then once. Once you know whodunit, that's it for me.
I don't usually read murder mysteries....maybe silence of the lambs?
No, I quite liked her style, but her voice was too old for the characters she is reading, particularly the main female character. This made the whole thing a little off.
This was quite a nail biter. Had to keep listening to see what happened.
Once you get over the old sounding narrator, this is a great story, perfect listen while painting the house.
If you like stories about psychics or paranormal stuff, you would probably like this. I had picked up a book by Kay Hooper one summer as a beach read. While I likes it, I felt like I was missing too much back story, so I decided to start with the first novel, Stealing Shadows. While the first novel in a series, it is a stand-alone story that does not leave the reader / listener thinking that a sequel is required to finish the story. I liked that.
Nothing really comes to mind.
For me, the narrator definitely distracted from the book. While she did a good job with the voices, the microphone was too close to her mouth so I could hear her breath intakes and lips smacking. Very annoying.
