"Wickedly witty." (Booklist)
Good Music Lover
I read this book in paperback years ago and thought it might be nice to revisit it in audio form. It is a funny, witty and very entertaining story. My biggest problem is the narrator. It is not the voices she does, because they are very good. My problem is the swallowing sound that she makes constantly. I usually listen to audio books on my Ipod. The sound is quite distracting and a little disgusting to listen to it through earphones. I'm not really happy about having to write this review, but I just want anyone else who would purchase this to be aware that the noise occurs ALOT. Other than that, I have no problem with the story or narrator.
I really enjoyed this audiobook! I couldn't stop listening once I started. The narrator was excellent! Katie MacAlister writes one hell of a story. Jim the Demon made me laugh out loud! The romance between Aisling and Drake was super hot! No pun intented!
I really like the story line and feel the narrator did very well. I don't know if the noise I hear on the recording is the narrator or the sound quality, but sometimes it was a little irritating. I enjoyed the story and although I don't mind sexual content, I felt the descriptions were a little repetitive. All in all, I will listen to the remainder of the series and have enjoyed the story thus far.
If you want a review of the story, you'll have to go to another person's review because I couldn't manage to listen to the whole book due to the narrator. Odd pauses, swallowing, lip smacking - it was completely distracting. I'm going to go buy the book instead and read it, wish I hadn't wasted my money on this audiobook. Audiobook listeners beware! To sum it up in one word - dreadful.
Great choice for stress relief! Katie MacAlister has a great imagination and Barbara Rosenblatt is my all time favorite reader. Barbara makes the characters so much more entertaining than I believe anyone else could. (I heard the noises other listeners complained of, but Barbara is a person, not a machine, doesn't bother me. I did notice it more when I wore headphones and had the volume up too high. I didn't hear it in my car.)
I love Audible for their variety and number of options of books available. I can enjoy books, take care of my grandchildren and drive too.
This is the latest in her dragon series on audible.com. Good story line with great characters. The narrator is good and gives life to the various and different story lines involved in each of her books. I look forward to seeing the entire series to download in the future. Please do not change narrators. This one is perfect for the books.
This book might have been great but I had to grit my teeth to finish it. The narrator's swallowing and smacking and general unedited salivating was more attention grabbing than her scratchy old lady voice. It was like having a great song come on the radio and trying to listen to it through static and the bleed over of another station. Depressing. I want to know what happens next but listening to all that slobber makes me want to clean my ears with an ice pick
Fun story. the lip-smacking noises got to be very noticeable by the end though. Going on and on about snipping the demon's balls got old too. I think the character could have been more comical and less annoying
I'm on chapter 12 and had to stop due to the constant swallowing , she sounds like a smoker. Whoever said she is to Audiobooks what Meryl Streep is to film is crazy. I have purchased so many audiobooks and now I will make sure I never buy one with this Narrator.
