What didn’t you like about Rebecca Lowman’s performance?

It's like Rebecca never watched the series, never kickstarted the movie, never watched the movie, and never listened to the first book. Seriously not a marshmallow....didn't even try.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Super disappointed and a little weirded out.

Any additional comments?

Snappy lines without Kristen Bell fall so short and sound rude instead of charming.I'll be following other's advice and returning this audio book. Reading the book, I can at least channel my inner Veronica Mars/Kristen Bell voice.

Darn!!

Rob Thomas!! Kirsten Bell!! Fix this!! :)

Pattern Recognition audiobook cover art

realizing how important the narrator is

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 06-03-04

I read Pattern Recognition last year and thought I might enjoy listening to the story once again on ipod. I was quite fond of the book and looked forward to listening to the story while doing chores and exercising, my usual audible pass-times.

For the first time, I found that the narrator actually made the story unlistenable. Shelly Frasier does not come across as a storyteller. I really wish that the crew that has done most of the Orson Scott Card books had a chance with Pattern Recognition, or the narrator of Ringworld. Books like The Secret Life of Bees and Tara Road are such fabulous stories to listen to, in large part because of their talented narrators. I'm afraid that Pattern Recognition was a loss for me--both as a wasted book credit and as a disappointment. I know this book could have been a fabulous audio story.
