Publisher's Summary

Gray was beautiful four years ago, when he asked Isabel to marry him. Now there are no words to describe him. He is no longer young and reckless, not by any stretch of the imagination, but a tormented man, driven by secrets, silent about what he’s done since he disappeared. She knew how to handle the boy he was, but this man…this man is not tamable. Does she dare explore the places inside herself that Gray demands to possess? Does she trust him enough to bare herself completely to a lover who has returned as a stranger?

Sarah-What Happen??? Narration Terrible!!!!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger- how can audible accept this bad performance?

Any additional comments?

This narration was just the worse! there is no way to rate the story because Sarah Coomes just killed this book. It is almost like she decided to make fun of the book.

I have heard her in other books and she was fine, maybe not the greatest, but not bad at all. In this book, it was so bad that at times it was commical-every male voice sounded like a badly constipated old man; the entire book is over-acted and sounds like a bad parody, but not in a funny way.

I am very surprise that audible published it as is- where is your quality control?
DO NOT DO IT-bottom line- it is not worth anything, even free it is impossible to listen to it.

Narration Terrible

Can't comment on the story because the intolerable narration made it impossible to finish. Do not waste money or credit.

This narrator Sucks

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The narrator makes getting through this novel; positively tedious. Her reading sounds like its stuck between a whine and a growl which is a little disturbing. I eventually just bought the book for my Kindle as the narrator was really working my nerves.

How could the performance have been better?

Have another narrator.

Do you think The Stranger I Married needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No all loose ends were brought to a close.

The voice is ear shattering!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one but the deaf! The book is great but the narrator ruined it!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like them all because they are so varried yet they blend well.

What didn’t you like about Sarah Coomes’s performance?

Her voice is like nails on a chalkboard! I could not listen without frowning and gaining a headache! How no one noticed the severity of her terrible performance is beyond me!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

All of the above only because of the narrator.

Any additional comments?

I would love my money back since I couldn't even get passed half of the first chapter!

Save your $7

This is one of the most godawful narrations ever. Audible should allow readers to nominate the worst narrations of the year awards because this mess would win first prize.

Sarah Coomes chews up the scenery in a reading so vaudevillian as to be comical -- if only that is what we came here for. Her natural speaking voice (which is what I heard in the sample) is a lovely British accent that sounded perfect for the story, but for some horrible reason she read each character in an over the top, heavy handed caricature of high class pompousness that sounded painful not only to hear but also to say! Where was the directer? (I pictured some idiot in the sound booth saying "more, more, more!")

Perhaps it wasn't Sarah fault but the directors fault? I don't know. I just know I'm going to purchase this on Kindle because the reviews at Amazon were great.

As for the story -- I wish we had the option of putting a question mark instead of a star. I listened to almost an hour of this and I still couldn't tell you if it was good or not. I know it's only $7 -- but trust me. Go get a latte and a cookie instead.

Bad Narration

Read the book first! This is one of my favorite standalone novels from Sylvia Day. I'm so glad I've read the book before getting the audible version. The narration was HORRiBLE!! I did not read the reviews prior to purchasing. My fault! I agree with the previous reviews. She sounds like she was going to vomit every time she narrates Gerard which, ruined the story. I could barely stomach her narrating Pel's voice. Disappointed.. I had a hard time finishing it.

Narration kills it

I agree with the other reviews of this book - the narration just kills it! She is so over the top and makes what could be a normal conversation so awful and ear piercing to listen to. I finish all my books i buy, it’s just a rule I have for myself, but hell, it happens much slower when I can’t stand the voice I am listening to.

That said, I am a HUGE Sylvia Day fan and have bought all her books. This is only the second out of all of them that has killed my ears. I wish she would stick with the narrators that rock it and not venture out so much when the novel takes place in the same era and such.

The stories, as always, are wonderful. Just wish it was always as wonderful to listen to them.

Couldn't finish listening

I usually like Silvia Day's books. And maybe if it was narrated by a different person. I found this performance absolutely dreadful. After the first hour, I couldn't even listen any longer. I have deleted this book from my library and am going to ask for a refund of my wasted credit.
