    "Good story, bad narration"
    Would you try another book from Kay Hooper and/or Cristine McMurdo-Wallis?

    I would try another Kay Hooper book


    What didn’t you like about Cristine McMurdo-Wallis’s performance?

    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.


    Could you see Stealing Shadows being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story, I just wish it was a better narrator.

    "Fantastic "read""
    Would you listen to Stealing Shadows again? Why?

    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!

    Story
    "Narrator would be great at bedtime stories..."
    What disappointed you about Stealing Shadows?

    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.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kay Hooper before, how does this one compare?

    I enjoy Kay Hooper books, and the story here wasn't one of my favorites, but still enjoyed it.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Nothing short of another narrator would have helped the performance.


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

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    Lots of suspense building, but a little predictable ending.

    "droning monotone narration"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The tone of her voice never changed. The woman that narrated this story should only be allowed to read hypnosis recordings.

    Story
    "Utter waste of money and time!"

    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.

    Story
    "Enjoyable Psychic Mystery"

    with a strong romantic element. I like it when an author uses individual character depth and development to show the reader their importance to the story. I think mysteries make that a little trickier and it was done well here. Believable dialog, situations, and conflicts. Decent tension and pacing throughout. Solid mystery. Satisfying ending. The narrator did a good job differentiating between characters. I loved her rendering of the sherif best. I could actually picture him when she read his lines. All these parts added up so well, I was surprised that the whole felt somewhat canned/formulaic (and this coming from someone who reads mostly romances).

    Story
    "So-so"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a forgettable story, characters were under developed.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was blah just like the rest of the book, again not good but not bad.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cristine McMurdo-Wallis?

    Anybody else, no range of voices, well not a good range, they all sounded to old.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope!

    "Good story, could be even better"

    I will have to go back and listen to other books in this series. This was actually less fluff than I expected, but I feel I am missing a lot of character development that probably happened before this installment.

    The story here is good, but the revelations are far from earth-shattering. As the words flew by, I was much more interested in the people than the mystery, but it was good enough to warrant listening to another book in the series.

    "Entertaining and great narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Stealing Shadows to be better than the print version?

    unknown


    What does Cristine McMurdo-Wallis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was entertaining and enjoyable


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book for it's content and for the narration
