In the Far Pashmina Mountains audiobook cover art

Might be more enjoyable with a different narrator.

The story was ok but I couldn't get past the narrator ready each sentence like she was checking off a grocery list. There was no fluidity to the narration. She made each sentence feel like it was standing alone from the rest.

This novel got old really quick. If you've read a Jude Deveraux or Lauren Willig novel, chances are you've heard this story before (many times) without a new spin....ok ok a new century is the only spin you'll get with this book. Sometimes, I would forget that the story is set in modern day (and I mean 2000's) with the old-fashioned way these families behave. It's the story of a NAIVE, sheltered, 19-year old girl who's "sold" to an older, rich, up and coming politician who's out for revenge against the Chicago Mafia led by the girl's father.

It's as if the author couldn't make up their mind on the kind of story they wanted to tell. It feels like Shen wanted to have an old romance story told soft and delicately and then you're reminded you're in a modern time with the vulgar, sexual terms that are used.

I didn't care for the female narrator; especially the voice she gave the male love interest. She, too, made the story FEEL like it was set in the 18th century (if that makes sense); she and her uninspired Italian accent. The male narrator's interpretation for me, was more spot on. At times, it seemed they were telling 2 different stories. Plus, the terminology used- If I had a nickel for every time the terms "fiance, future wife, future husband, bride-to-be, my husband, my wife, YOUR FATHER" were used, I'd be rich. *ROLLS EYES* Overused and unnecessary.

Many times I had to stop, shake my head and yell, "WHO TALKS LIKE THIS ANYMORE!?!?!" and Can you say virginal, bloody bed sheets on the wedding night? Who does THAT anymore?

MEH!

The narrator has a lovley voice and is a great but I was distracted by constantly hearing her swallow and smack her mouth. I assume this is an editing issue. The story was decent. Between chapters though, there are random descriptions of paitings, I imagine these are in the book....BUT random for an audiobook. I LOVE and appreciate art but this was out of nowhere and for me, disrupts the flow of the book/story.
