I had been trying to read Angels & Demons but found it a struggle. I found that listening to it a whole lot easier & got very absorbed in the story. I got to the point where like a book it was difficult to put away & I had to keep going. I found the narrator very easy to listen to & he got you involved all the way through

I love the Argeneau books this one included. My only problem is with the narrator of this one because she makes Anders sound so wooden & boring. I have also read the book & found it much more involving than this narration. I love Anders & was very pleased that his story has been written. Now I must wait for the next one.

As always Jeaniene Frost writes a great story but I found that this story was not as all enthralling as usual. The actual story did not grab me which is disapointing as I was so looking forward to Vlad"s stories. I just hope that the next one is better

Would you listen to A Secret Rage again? Why?

Yes because I found it to be an engrossing story

What about Johanna Parker???s performance did you like?

Johanna always gets you into the feelings of the story-teller & you get really involved

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

Yes

Any additional comments?

Charlaine Harris has proved again that her story telling is not confined to a certain style. I have read many of her books not only the Sookie Stackhouse & always find them involving

I just couldn't stop reading this book. It is such a combination of a love story & history that I found it very intriguing. Add in the supernatural and you really have a winner. I really hope that there is going to be a follow up novel because I would really like this story to continue. Loved the combination of Diana & Matthew.
