cute and fun

It took me a while to get into this story because although I think the narrator is very good at creating character voices, I didn't think her husky older sounding voice fit the personality of Aisling. It just kept bugging me all through the recording.

Another thing that bothered me was the constant rustling of paper in the background and the swallowing noises of the reader. It actually sounded like she was eating or sucking on candy or something. I don't ever remember listening to another book with so much saliva swallowing in it ever. Even though the story was good, I kept having to fight my way through it because of the narrator. I think she would be really really good if she can learn how not to rustle the paper of the script and tone down or edit the very loud swishing and swallowing in her mouth. yuck

Narrator is ruining this book for me!

So far the story, hasn't been to bad, but narrator, Barbara Rosenblat is a very bad choice. For on thing, she sounds way to old for the main character. Secondly, she comes across as if she is on some kind of medicine, which is making her have a very dry mouth. You are forced to hear her take many deep breaths. And this gets really annoying.

Ok story, awful narrator

I agree with many of the other reviews that the story is pretty good. But narrator is pretty much the worst possible voice for this story. Her voice is too old sounding, and it sounds like she's got smokers-voice. There's nothing sexy about her at all and the voice of the narrator killed my ability to believe the attraction between the main character and her love interest. I won't listen to any more books in the series if they have this same narrator.

Swallow Smack Swallow

The story is witty and fast...very enjoyable but the narrator is not. She makes a lot of extra noises that I have never heard from a professional narrator. She swallows noisily at the end of almost every 4th sentence and it is not easy to ignore...it is gross...her voices are good though and I did listen to the whole book...but it lost 2 stars due to its narration..I won't listen to more books by the same author if they have the same narrator. How could someone not hear this and realize it was going to affect the listening public? Not everyone is capable of being a narrator...face it.

The narrator smacked....a lot.

I didn't particularly enjoy this book. The narration was okay, the book was just dull. Maybe just not my style.

Story good, Narrator gross.

The book was good. It was an interesting story and filled with humor and enough information to be well thought out (but the main character was a bit too air headed for me). And Jim the demon dog was the funniest thing in the book. The hardest thing to get over was the bad narration. The narrator did well in making different voices for the characters and putting some emotion and style in the dialogue (maybe a little too much in several places). But I could barely get through the entire audiobook with all the lip smacking, saliva filled talking. Extremely gross and annoying (Swallow or spit, PLEASE, before you talk). Tried to lower the volume, but most the time I could still hear it even over a tractor/truck engine (That's bad!).

terrible narrator

This book was completely ruined for me bc of the narrator. She is constantly swallowing and smacking her tongue. It's gross and distracting.
She also takes long pauses at awkward moments--like in the middle of a sentence.

Save your credits and/or money - Don't buy this!

I could not get past the first chapter as it was incoherent and awkward. Or maybe I just fell asleep.

Hilarious!!

Where does You Slay Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book rates pretty high on my list.

What other book might you compare You Slay Me to and why?

The author adds great humor to the characters and the story, which is pretty similar to the humor found in Molly Harper's stories.

What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

It added just the right amount of quirky likability to the main characters personality.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely!

Any additional comments?

The sidekick demons added great comic relief to an all together entertaining story.

Fun and Funny

This book has some really great laugh out loud moments. It is an interesting storyline. Love the characters, mostly. I am experiencing some winter blues, the timing of this book was great for me. Story is fun and sexy. Nicely sexy. The narrator definitely gives the story life. She has great voices for each character, I applaud her ability. The French voices are awesome. However, she was over the top. It became annoying. I can't believe I am saying this when I dislike the narrators that just "read" the text. This narrator is a one person show, that along with some cheesy dialog and I couldn't listen straight thru. It took several days to get thru this book. I had to get away from it. I really don't like to sound so picky. I like this author, this is a first of hers for me. I will try more of her books before deciding. It is a fun story...murder, mayhem, dosed with funny.
