Wanted to like it but narration was off

What did you like best about Gift of Time? What did you like least?

Interesting story line. I like fantasy and magic but the narrator ruined it for me. I felt like the story was being read to me by my aunt...anyone's aunt. Her voice and inflection didn't connect me to the story.

What aspect of Karen Anton’s performance would you have changed?

This just wasn't the right book for her.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Didn't make it through the whole book. Doubtful.

A Touch of Fantasy; It Doesn't Help

If you love lesbian romance, time travel, and a reader that sounds as if she's reading her first audiobook this is the selection for you. Throw in some requisite political correctness this early novel by an excellent writer is decidedly mediocre; a pale facsimile of some of the books that followed this one. Both of the lead characters are humble, conscientious, and want only the best for each other. The time travel aspect isn't the only, or even the most contrived aspect of this book. As I mentioned earlier the narrator for this audio further depresses an already poor work of fiction; she has to have one of the more grating monotones that I've had to listen to. I have a big problem recommending this book even though she wrote one of my all-time favorites (Just Jorie) I'm so glad her writing improved.

Terrible narrator!

One of the worst narrators I've ever heard on audible. Monotone with zero inflection and emotion. Didn't get past 5 minutes

Wonderful!

I really enjoyed this unique and tender story, as well as the narrator. It is seemingly simple, but weaves in a little funky time travel with race, gender and sexual orientation themes, along with a touching romance. It warmed my heart and was very engaging.

Horrible Narrator

The characters are well developed and the story draws you in from the beginning but the narrator sounds like a board barely literate teen in being forced to read out loud in class.

Great book. Great Audible.

I read this story many years ago. When I came across it again I decided to see if it was on Audible. I was happy to find it in the Romance package. I enjoyed it just as much. It's a fun story with great characters. Well worth the time.

A thrilling romance

A story of love through time. It totally captures your imagination and takes you along on the roller-coaster ride. Giving thrills and chills to reach the end. Aswering an age old question. Does love really conquer all.

Nerve wracking, intriguing and Lacey

I love Robin Alexander but this is not her best story yet it's still a great listen. The narrator changes the voices just enough but doesn't hinder the story. I have all of this authors books and a happily waiting for the audible versions to come out.
