Good Read

The narrator had a good tone and did the Italian, German, and English accents well. The plot line is good and I caught myself shedding a few tears while listening, really feeling for the girl. I will look for more books by this author/narrator.

Horrible!

This narrator ruined the whole story for me. Her attempt at an Italian accent was so terrible that it grated on my nerves like fingernails on a chalkboard. Her English accent wasn't even passable and let's just forget mentioning the Scots accent! This was not a pleasurable experience at all.

Beautiful Love Story!

I will READ more stories by this author (READ is the operative word). The story was beautiful and touching. I rated it 3 stars becasue of the narrator. While she did a good job with some of the accents she absolutely MUTILATED the accent of the men (Yohan and Christiano). I absolutley love hearing books with European accents however I think Audible should do a better job when picking narrators if they are going to attemp reading in accents. I am more cautious now upon purchasing AUDIBLE stories becasue the narrator means EVERYTHING!
