I wanted to like this book. I liked the first one. However, these characters really drove me nuts. Adam and Mia are the couple that you knew back in high school that constantly broke up and got back together again to the point where you just had to cut them out of your life because they were so annoying and immature. I'm not going to leave any spoilers here but this book could have condensed down to novella-length with everything in the middle edited out and it would have been just fine. The plot does not go anywhere for hours. But the narration is excellent so that's something.

Any additional comments?

I'd just be repeating what everyone else has already said. Wondering if this choice to change voices/accents was due to the long period of time between the 4th and 5th books, if Jean Auel requested it, or if the narrator took it upon herself to make changes?

Would you consider the audio edition of Summer with a Star to be better than the print version?

NO!!!

What three words best describe Dawnya Clarine’s performance?

Huge turn off.

Any additional comments?

I have these three books in print and enjoyed them. Quick, fun reads. Got the audiobooks on sale and am really glad that I did not pay full price for them. The narration is just such a huge turn off. It takes characters that I actually like and turns them into odd, awkward people with no personality. The tone and fluency of narration are distracting and makes it hard to enjoy the stories.

Narration is way over the top and cheesy. Story is predictable and poorly written. Outdated.
