Good story, bad narration

Would you try another book from Kay Hooper and/or Cristine McMurdo-Wallis?

I would try another Kay Hooper book

What didn’t you like about Cristine McMurdo-Wallis’s performance?

She sounds old for the age of the characters in the book, lots of strange pauses and I didn't care for her interpretation of the characters. She made the book more boring than it really was.

Could you see Stealing Shadows being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

yes

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the story, I just wish it was a better narrator.

Story: good - Narrator: not so much :(

I enjoyed the story even though some of the dialog was hokey. My only complaint relates to the narrator. Her deep, husky voice was difficult to listen to; particularly her interpretation of male voices. I nearly ground my teeth to bits clenching my jaws listening to this narrator. In the future, I will avoid her readings.

Fantastic "read"

Would you listen to Stealing Shadows again? Why?

Captivating, enthralling, suspense packed, a great ending with a couple of twists. The only criticism i can give this book is that it ended :(
Its always sad when you finish a book you cant put down for the life of you!

droning monotone narration

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The tone of her voice never changed. The woman that narrated this story should only be allowed to read hypnosis recordings.

Narrator

Narrator was distracting with mouth noises and audible pauses while speaking. Almost couldn’t listen to the narration due to the mouth noises.

Story just ok.

The story seemed to drag. The narrator distracted me. Every time she swallowed or licked her lips you headed it and it was not a pleasant sound.

Terrible awful horrible horrific narrative!

This was the absolute worst narration that I have ever heard! I thought up until now that I've heard bad but I was terribly wrong. There are long pauses and you wonder what happened. Everyone has the same voice. It's bad. Bad bad.
