    Story
    "Decent storyline, bad narration"
    What made the experience of listening to The Wanderer the most enjoyable?

    The narrator's voice was just wrong for the protagonist- he was a decent guy who was given such a rough voicing that it was hard to keep listening


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

    The ending was a little predictable


    Would you be willing to try another one of Therese Plummer’s performances?

    NO


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the lead charactor stood up for Landon, the younger brother.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a bit hard to force myself to continue listening to the harsh voicing of the Cooper character...I was tempted to turn to the printed verrsion of this book due to the narration

    Any additional comments?

    I was so looking forward to this new Robin Carr series however, I was sadly disappointed. The characters were boring, the story was slow paced and the romance was lackluster.

    "I Couldn't Finish It"

    I am really disappointed. I loved the Virgin Series and was excited about this book. It has been on my Iphone for over a month and I have tried at least 5 times to listen to it enough to get into it.

    I just couldn't do it. The story and the characters bored me to tears. Even Therese Plummer couldn't warm it up enough for me to want to finish it.

    It is rare for me to dump a book without finishing it. I'm afraid this one joined that limited collection.

    "This series has Potential !!"

    I liked Cooper when I first met him visiting Virgin River. Getting to know him better in Thunder Point was not a disappointment. This series shows a lot of promise of more heartwarming, fun-loving, and a little crazy love in a small eccentric community. I can't wait to see whose next on the "hit" list. Thanks, Robyn.

    "very enjoyable listen and narrator very good"
    Would you listen to The Wanderer again? Why?

    I enjoyed the book and hope Miss Carr expands the series into a on going series as she did in the Virgin River Books The characters were real and the different emotions and difficulties they encounter during the story and their reactions were believeable


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

    When Mac realize Gina was going on a date with the new doctor


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    I like the sound of her voice and the different inflection she uses to speak the different characters


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

    yes because I enjoyed it but you can easily do it in more than one and still follow the story line without losing any of it


    Any additional comments?

    Another good one for Robyn Carr

    "A great Book from Robyn Carr"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Now this was a different story than the Virgin River series but a great story that I have listened to several times. A good love story and all the characters are great. I would recommend this book to all my friends.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love listening to Therese Plummer. She makes you believe each character is a real person.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The love story between the four main characters was terrific.

    I enjoy stories being read to me. It relaxes the soul and mind at the end of the day, especially when you have a great reader/narrator.

    "Seems I have heard this before."

    Robyn Carr is on my instant buy list, I have everything she has ever written but I regret to say it seems as if she took pieces of her virgin river stories and made this one. You had a little Jack in their a little of Collin and a few other of the VR series ppl. It was still and enjoyable book but it has been done before. I would of rather of waited longer for a new book then to read something it seems I have just read.

    "The Wanderer"
    If you could sum up The Wanderer in three words, what would they be?

    I have listened to all of the Virgin River series and this one picked right up where Sunrise Point left off. I want to hear more. I need to know what happens to Cooper and Sarah and everyone else.

    Please Please write more.
