Couldn't Finish It

I purchased this audiobook because of the many rave reviews, but unfortunately mine wont be as kind. I didn't hold this to particularly high standards because it is a romance book, and went along with most of it until about the third section. The absolute worst thing about this audiobook is the narrator. She sounds like a little old lady, and the last thing I want is a little old lady (with a whiny voice) reading sex scenes to me. The narrator breathes heavy, swallows audibly, and has a halting way of delivering the script. And she absolutley butchers the main Comanche's way of speaking. She narrates the Indians in the same stereotypical way that most people say "how" when mimicking Native Americans, deep and drawn out, and absolutey awful for the main love interest. The book itself held my interest until the third segment. I allowed myself to believe that a Comanche could speak fluent English, and believed that he could fall in love with a white girl, but the story got repetitive very quickly. He abducts her, she fights back, he takes her home, she comes back, she tries to run away, he convinces her to stay, she runs away, he goes after her. It seemed like these Indians had nothing better to do than chase after her through the whole book. And she is such a prude I felt like screaming. Also, rape is a very prevalent theme. I wasn't offended or put out by it, but it just seemed like everyone got raped or was almost raped, and just when you think youve gotten past it they vividly describe an old rape. I guess overall my expectations were that if I managed to believe this English speaking Indian falls head over heels for a white girl and chases her all over the earth then at least take me the whole way-dont have him threaten to beat her or marry other wives, and please dont give him the voice of a typecast Indian.

Narrator

If you could sum up Comanche Moon in three words, what would they be?

I acually liked the story, Hard to overcome the way you are brought up, hating "savages" and "whites" alike. I am am american Native and not so long ago in 2008 there was actually a woman who referred to us as "savages" in this time and age hard to believe! But she was upset over the Native americans opening a Casino....Some tend to forget where they come from, most all came from another country, we are the natives who's land was taken away...anyway that is another story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked both main characters in the book, really seeing each other and being able to understand why each other has the feelings they do.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ruth Ann Phimister?

I didn'tt like her much but I am kind of sensitive in my hearing. She smacked to much for me and I was tempted to refund my book, which I do if I don't like the story or narrator. Long silenes also.

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

Nothing extremme.

Any additional comments?

Think you could have used two narrators male and female for the charactors!

The narrator’s voice...

I tried so hard to listen to the full audiobook, which is one of my favorite historical romance novel, but I just couldn’t like the narrator’s voice enough to finish. The pacing was so off, you could hear the sounds her mouth made in between speech, and her voice was just too scratchy and high.

wonderful book

A book that takes you back in time. I love stories like this, and there are many wonderful examples of life explained in this book.

Make sure you listen to Comanche Heart right after this. The books follow in order.

I recommend this to anyone who likes to relive their dreams.

LOVED THIS STORY

I am not sure what else to say about this book ... besides I LOVED IT! You will not reqret the purchase. Also, I would love to see Madaline Stowe and Daniel Lewis play Loretta and Hunter ... it would be a box office hit.

Nice idea, but doesn't work.

The differences between Loretta and the comanche are never overcome. There is far too much between them. I will say that I liked the hero a great deal, and I was entirely openminded. I also felt very sad for the reality that is the Native American history. But all and all I didn't buy the story.

Narrator is horrible

The story held my interest, so I stuck it out. It was kind of repetitive towards the end though. The narrator’s voice is horrible and it made it difficult to want to finish. You could hear the sounds her mouth made in between speech, and her voice was just too scratchy and high. She sounded like an old lady. I will not continue with the other books in this series.

I loved this wonderful story

I enjoyed visiting this era, these people. I loved the way they talked to one another. It was a heartwarming adventure with tragedy and hope. One of my favorite reads this year.

This should be a movie! FABULOUS

This story has all of the emotional elements and although the setting was historical, there was much to learn from the hatred and struggle for peace without racism that still exists today.
I loved hearing the Comanche words because of my heritage although I don't know the language.
The narrator was TERRIFIC and held my attention.
