Narrators voice ruins the audibook!

The storyline is quite enjoyable but the narrator keeps making these awful nasal sounds that are so irritating I had to stop listening!

Distracted by the Narration.

Would you try another book written by Karen Hamilton or narrated by Anna Friel?

By Karen Hamilton, yes.

Read by Anna Friel, probably not.

Any additional comments?

I think this was a good story, but Anna’s constant swallowing was extremely distracting. She left long gaps in between words, for no apparent reason. I was expecting better, but I just couldn’t cope with hearing her frequent swallowing.

Not sure

On the whole, I quite enjoyed this but the narration is dire. Hated listening to all the ‘mouth noises ‘ coming from Anna Friel. Plus long gaps between words. I will give a wide berth to any books read by Ms Friel

Let down by poor narration

I was so looking forward to listening to this book which had been well reviewed pre publication. However it is very difficult to give a fair review of the book as it is so badly let down by the appalling narration. There are many pauses, the narration is slow and dragged out and Anna Friel constantly swallows and slurps. Disappointing !

Brilliant book

Story was excellent. Kept my interest all the way through. Could see this being made into a film. BUT detested Anna friels narration sounded like she was eating and swallowing all the way through. If the story had not been so enthralling I would have given up

OK story but very badly read by Anna.

The ending is disappointing. Read by professional actress- I was expecting professional reading. unprepared, lots of pauses and sounded as Anna was sucking on sweet. i was expecting much more from this book. i was expecting twists but it was just the same thing all along.

couldn't listen

can't tell if Anna friel had a cold or wasn't interested but along with the sighing smacking of lips and other noises was impossible to tolerate

worth a listen

A little unbelievable in terms of plotting, but enjoyable nonetheless. The narrator was annoying with her inexplicable pauses, but she did convey a sense of the character's emotions

Anna Friel absolutely ruins it!

What would have made The Perfect Girlfriend better?

I was distracted from a basically sound story by Anna Friel's simply dreadful narration. She mis-pronounced words and she sounded as though she had a cold throughout. Friel left pauses between words in sentences that just shouldn't have been there and I was really put off by her constant swallowing noises and pronunciation. I couldn't wait to get to the end for all the wrong reasons. Whoever decided to use Friel as narrator has done the author Karen Hamilton a huge disservice. I would honestly avoid any other book read by Friel. Her voice was awful!

Excellent story. Frustrating narration.

A good study of obsession and warped reality. The narration was a constant annoyance though. A good voice ruined by almost constant swallowing sounds, lip smacking and 'acting' which frequently resulted in bad inflection and inappropriate pauses. I stuck with it because the story is gripping.

"Read it" she said, "you'll love it" she said

I did not. I was driving across the Nullabor and thought this would help the time pass quicker. It did not. My friend said the narrator's voice was annoying at first but would fit the profile at some point. It did not.
