Betrayal at the highest level...

From a Distance by CL Hart is a first for me in the gay/lesbian genre. I realize this is the classification but I'm not completely sure why. This book is an outstanding military thriller. I purchased this when I browsed new mystery releases and this book came up. I'm so glad I got this, this book has it all. Juvenile in trouble a caring judge, money, greed and betrayal.
I could not stand the narration. I'm not sure if she was trying to sound secretive or what but what ever it was it was terrible. She also spoke verrrry slowwwwly and I listened to this on 1.5 speed in order for it to sound like a speaking voice.
There are a few light romantic scenes which I fast forwarded through. Not for any other reason then if I'm listening to a military book I really don't care who is in a romance with who. If I want romance I would get a book in that genre.
As a military thriller this book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

I really tried.

I loved the plot, the characters and the story. But I'm sorry, I couldn't deal with the narrator whispering. Constantly straining to hear what she was saying was too tiring. I could not finish it. I will buy the ebook and read it.

Exciting page Turner ... Action Packed

I devoured every word and I highly recommend it to everyone. "From A Distance" is a action packed lesbian military/ops novel. I have read a few with same theme. However this one read believeable. F/F romance was important part of story but not the entire story. Worth price or credit.

Loved this one!!

Loved this story, action and how it played out. I was extremely into the book, the voice of the narrator, (which can be difficult at times) and loved the ending.

Narrator puts you to sleep

I loved the Book & Kindle version but fell asleep on 5 different occasions while listening to the audlible version. Narrator was barely louder than a whisper.

Great book ... hard to hear

This was a really good listen, but the narrator whispered the narrative a lot. It was hard to hear. Still worth the purchase.

Amazing story, horrible narrator

This book is by far the most fantastic I have read. However, the narrator was horrible. She would whisper and it was hard to hear her. But this book is phenomenal I recommend either reading it or listening.

What is the narrator doing?

I was really looking forward to hearing this. And in the introduction, and quote to start the chapter, the narrator sounded fine.

Then, beginning the story itself, the tone changed, and she whispered, the whole darned way. It was like straining to hear somebody whispering across a table at you.

I haven't heard this narrator before, so I don't know if this is her usual style, or if it was what she was directed to do for dramatic affect. Whatever it was, it doesn't work. At all.

Sadly, I shall be returning the audio book, and just reading this on my Kindle. Which is a real shame, because I much prefer audio books.

If you want to buy this, I strongly recommend you listen to the audio sample first. I didn't because I preordered this on the Amazon store page when I bought the Kindle book.
