This isn't the type of book I usually read/listen to but it was recommended by a friend so I gave it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. The story captivated my attention and the narrator was great. It seemed unusual to have someone with a British accent at first but she has a very nice voice and didn't try to over play the characters like I've heard in lots of other books. It felt more like someone reading me a story than a one person, over acted play and I liked that. I liked the character of Nadia and I didn't feel like it was predictable. I'm looking forward to listening to High Stakes.
No, because I can do my own voices in my head when I am reading it. With the audiobook I have to listen to Ms. Darling's version and they just aren't very good - everyone sounds the same and for quick back and forth conversations, it is difficult to figure out who is saying what.
Yes, but only because I like the Nadia Wolf series not because of Ms. Darling's contribution
