    Audiophile since the days I had to check 'em out on rickety cassette tapes at the local library. Currently working the other side of production as an author of romance and scifi/fantasy.

    "Hunter delivers again."
    Any additional comments?

    Mysterious and intriguing, Hunter continues to wow in this book, giving us a strong heroine with her own mind, own faults, and own agenda. Picking up some five years after the events of A Hidden Fire, the scintillating librarian has rebuilt her life in Southern California after Gio's presence becomes by mere proxy. Though she continues friendships with others she's met during her experience in World V, she grows frustrated with Gio's absence. When he finally does walk back into her life, her stewing erupts into a full-on boiling mess. As Gio and B work to come together again as couple, Lorenzo's maleficent deeds tug around the edges of their circle of friends, bringing with it both death, and a determination for justice. Meanwhile, Gio makes it clear to Beatrice that he's interested in her for the long haul, that he wants her to be with him forever. A host of new characters and revisits by others add elegance and intrigue, culminating with Beatrice's emergence as a Damsel that can cause others some serious distress. A fantastic series for anyone who wants their mystery and mythic creatures cut with a slice of passion and romance.

    "Vocal Performance Inconsistent with Story"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I enjoy the series, but I couldn't listen to the audio. It was ruining the characters for me.


    What didn’t you like about Dina Pearlman’s performance?

    Really disappointing casting. The characters are 28 but the vocals don't match; there is a twinge of NJ + valley girl that is inconsistent with a reclusive, CA librarian. Gio should be sexy, not disgruntled old man. I felt like the vocal performer really disliked the characters and wanted to portray that.

    I was really disappointed and stopped listening in chapter 2 to just read the book on my kindle and infuse age appropriate, non-loathing tones.


    What character would you cut from This Same Earth?

    NA

    What made the experience of listening to This Same Earth the most enjoyable?

    I love this story line and this book! A love story slowly rebuilt on trust and reassurance while an adventure is untangled and a friend is lost.

    "Uninspiring Performance"
    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dina Pearlman?

    Not unless it was a book I loved reading, like this one.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this story. However, there are so many better performers out there than Ms. Pearlman. They only way to tell the difference between the characters and her narration is the accents. She doesn't use much inflection and the passion between the characters is very flat. Its like she's just reading a story and not performing.
