    Story
    "Agree with review of C M Rains"

    Regardless of the narration, it really didn't bother me that much, the story it self was very good and kept my interest. (listen to the free listen before you buy) I find that in most cases if the story is a good one, you don't need a "Great Narrator" a good one will do the job. I remember everyone complained about Jim Butcher's "Ghost Story" because they had to use a different narrator not James Marsters. However the story was written by Jim Butcher and the story was great. The narrator did a fine job. I enjoyed this story very much. I'm getting the second book in this series to see where it takes the characters. I like very much that the heroine is not a push over and seems to be able to use her mind even under sever pressure. I recommend this story if you enjoy modern para-normal novels, it is well written and the characters are engrossing.

    Story
    "Bad Narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to The Heat the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the story but had a hard time getting used to the narrator. He has an accent to begin with and couldn't really do a decent cajun accent. I found his narration very distracting. For this reason, I doubt I will purchase the second book in the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Heat?

    The story was actually enjoyable but the narration took away from the story. I cannot remember a memorable moment in story.


    What aspect of Gildart Jackson’s performance would you have changed?

    I would have changed to another narrator. His narration ruined the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I wouldn't make this book into a film.

    Story
    "I liked it."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I wouldn't make the vilian/misunderstood good guy seem so bad. For example, when he tricks and tries to have the tatoo removed. That was just sadistic. It is hard to view him at his worst and then empathize later on when you find out that he dishes out justice to the real bad guys.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I didn't like the manipulation and domination aspect. However, as much as that is not my cup of tea, I know that the author is doing a good job of creating a dominate alpha who is a control freak.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator was good. I've heard worst and I've heard better. Nothing wrong with this narration.


    Was The Heat worth the listening time?

    Yes. It was unique. A little slow in some areas but I could keep going through them.
