Though Aedan Cameron would sooner spend his life as a scholar, reading, and watching the stars than assume a leadership role in his clan, his father's untimely death forces his hand. To make matters worse, he's immediately called upon to ride into battle to protect his land and his people. But everything changes for Aedan when a beautiful girl with a mind as curious as his own heals him. Suddenly, he realizes he's capable of becoming the leader his father wanted him to be while still pursuing the stars.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Brightest Star in the Highlands: Jennie and Aedan to be better than the print version?

Haven't read the print version

What other book might you compare The Brightest Star in the Highlands: Jennie and Aedan to and why?

Not sure

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Makes the females seem too whiny. Everyone sounds pretty much the same as in they sound like they might be performing on a stage in a play. Or maybe even like the master of ceremony at a circus. Every word is is like a grand announcement if it is a male and all males sound alike and all females sound alike. This series was previously voiced by a different narrator and he was great. My disappointment may have been intensified by having listened to the previous books in the series voiced by one person who was really good at giving each character their own voice and more bringing their character's personality to life. I came to know the characters. New person took over and all of a sudden characters weren't at all themselves.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no

Any additional comments?

Trying to decide if I want to keep listening to this series or switch to reading and hearing the voices in my head.
