Good book bad narrator.

Love the book extremely disappointed in the narator. All the characters sounded the same so it was hard to keep track of who was speaking.

Bring back Kimberly Alexis.

I love the Anita Blake series. But the narrator makes it so hard for me to enjoy them. I cant stand listening to her. She doesnt do the accents correctly and makes almost no difference in the character's voices. Jean Claude is French. Why does she have him sounding English? She even mispronounces a lot of the words. She is better this time than in the last book but not by much. She does not compare to Kimberly Alexis. Please bring her back.

I LOVE the Anita Blake series. But the narrator doesn't make me think "yeah, that sounds like Anita."

Not her best

First of all they changed narrators as of book 11. The original narrator was incredible. She gave every character their own unique voice, The narrator is not nearly as good. She did a better job than in book 11. Some characters sound different but Jean Claude has a terrible voice in this audible. Enough of that. The story leaves a lot to be desired. First this audio book is 27 hours long. There is maybe 5 hours of real plot in there. The rest of the story is Anita and her increasing love life and fighting with everyone around her. Fights with Nathaniel, Richard, Jean Claude, cops she works with and so on. I think the only one she never fights with is Micah. I fast forward most of the sex scenes and that cut a lot out of the story. I had hoped this story would be better in audio than book but it was not. I read the story five years ago and hoped it would seem better now. It did not. Sorry

I gave up after several chapters as I could not get into the story due to the narration.

Disappointment

You should have the same narrator read all the books of a series. Disappointing to say the least.

Horrible Narrator

LOVED this book! The narrator however, not at all. She made EVERY man's voice soft and feminine. Why?! Why does every man speak softer than Anita. It was extremely awkward during the sexy bits.😕 Also some of the pronunciations, like "weerwolf" were awful. It distracted from the story.

Great Story

Love the Anita Blake series, the narrator...not so much. No distinction between characters. The men sound like valley girls.

more sex than plot

I was hoping she would town down the sex scenes in this one. First 10 books you have a Christian almost prudish Anits Blake. The 11th book she turns into a nympho with explicit scenes and by book 13 shes into beastiality.
