    "OMG...What an awesome story book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They all are my favorite...especialy Mel. She thinks things through and gives good advise and does not judge people. She is so remarkably kind and a very caring.


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes...she is wonderful narrator because she pulls you in to the story as if you are right in the story yourself!


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

    Most defiantly!


    Any additional comments?

    I am on the 5th or 6th book, I listen to it at work and I have cried, laughed, and the romance parts are delightful! On my breaks after hearing the sad parts I would think about it and start tearing up and co-workers start laughing at me except my sister, just tells the other people she has a sensitive heart! I am working to get the entire series of Virgin River! I love all the books so far. I am on book Second Chance Pass book at this time. Love it, Love it!!!!!!!

    "Meh on Virgin River"
    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Therese Plummer?

    No.


    What was most disappointing about Robyn Carr’s story?

    The heroine was irritating. In the beginning of the book all she did was whine.


    What didn’t you like about Therese Plummer’s performance?

    I didn't like her voice and I thought she read the story too slowly.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointed in the story and didn't like Mel. Too whiney, too wimpy, too middle class. She buys and wears designer jeans and shoes. She drives a BMW. She yells


    Any additional comments?

    Didn't finish book

    "Predictable Story, Amazing Performance"
    Would you listen to Virgin River again? Why?

    Absolutely. Sometimes I want a break from the alternate universes of sci-fi or the extremem emotions of some of the more heart-wrenching authors. This fits the bill just right.


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first, but I will look for others.


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

    When the main character cried during an emotional breakdown, Plummer's voice was incredibly authentic. She put many hollywood actors to shame!

    "Hackneyed Formulaic Romance Novel"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story. Less predicable. More interesting characters.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.


    What didn’t you like about Therese Plummer’s performance?

    All the men sound the same, all the women sound the same, all the kids sound the same. There was very little variation, except for the old people.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I guess I should have known but I didn't see

    "Not bad, not good, just... typical"
    What did you like best about Virgin River? What did you like least?

    Well, one always likes a tall, silent, strong and yet gentle male lead.


    Would you recommend Virgin River to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not particularly... it wasn't bad, but it wasn't particularly outstanding among the many contenders in the romance genre.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine...


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

    Not likely, but then I find few movies worth the $10 price of admission these days.

    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Therese Plummer?

    yes, I would try another book from Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect of the story for me is when Mel realizes that she is pregnant.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, the narration matched the pace of the story.


    Do you think Virgin River needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. of course Virgin River needs a follow-up book. I think most of the audible readers are very interested in knowing what happens to the old doc. as well as Mel, Jack and the baby.


    Any additional comments?

    over all this was a very good book.

    Boring, boring, boring. I'm not a quitter but I had to give up on this one after chapter 10. It's rediculous and I decided a waste of my time.
