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.

Not a good listen

The narrator's accent was really, really, really bad, the story implausible. I wish I hadn't purchased.

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!

Narrator annoying

The narrator’s accents were brutal. It would have been better with no accents. Story line was slightly unbelievable but captured my attention.
