The narrator was painful however the story was excellent, in this case I would simply read the book rather than listen to it
The narrator did much better at narrating the book this time. She gave more feeling to the characteristics of each character this time around.
The narrator was great. Her infections were perfect. The writer has an obsession with specific words. The would be repeated 3-8 times in one chapter. It got to the point that I would cringe every time I heard the word 'incredulous' or 'incredulously'. I don't want to hear ot read the next book, just because of that.
How many times can an author contradict themselves? Example: the room is so dark the character can only see vague outlines, but a moment later can see someone's eyes clearly as well as the surroundings without an increase in lighting.
Molly C. Quinn sounds like she should be reading "adult" fiction. She also mispronounces so many things that it is distracting.
I'm not a big fan of Molly C. Quinn's reading voice. On Bones, she was a good actress but compared to previous books, she makes it almost uncomfortable to listen.
The book has more action and less monologues than some of the others in the series which is nice.
Great book as always from Cassandra but the reader is just awful. She does nothing to distinguish her voice between characters making it really difficult to follow the story at times. Also she whispers and inflects at odd moments often killing the mood. To be honest, I wish I had just read the book instead.
I love reading and the joy audio books, and audible has brought to the experience.
I like the series.
It's a bit slow paced in that each volume only spans a few weeks.
But satisfies readers if you like this genre.
