Comical & Cute

This is a comical, cute little story. Corny has a unique psychic ability to converse with animals. Luckily, her boyfriend Steve understands and accepts her as she is. While on a holiday weekend together they run into some comical animals and Corny’s abilities come in handy. Christy Williamson does a good job with the narration.

Terrible Narrator

What would have made Flamingo Blues better?

A competent Narrator

Has Flamingo Blues turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not if the narrator is changed.

How could the performance have been better?

An actress/narrator with a tolerable voice.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I really don't know, couldn't get past the narrator.

Any additional comments?

I was really looking forward to the concept of the story, but was unable to tolerate the narrator for more than about 3 minutes.

Very short

This was super short and had very little in the story department.

The youthful dialogue tends to make the smexy scenes feel awkward.

I wish this had been more about the pet psychic story.

Corny and Steve are cute together but very one dimensional. I would love to see them grow and gain more depth.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Christy Williamson, who is not the right fit for this book. She has a very youthful voice that would be better suited for YA reads. While she has great energy, it only adds to the overall feel of immaturity in the story. This just wasn't the right pairing, it only served to highlight flaws. I would love to hear her on a younger read where her voice would be a real credit to the material.


Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.
