Continual background music

The music that constantly plays in the back ground is very annoying and distracting. The story is good but the “production” music is horrible

Soundtrack make a great listen even better!

I didn't know what I was going to get with the gamble that has a soundtrack because a listened to the book so many times without it. The music and sounds gave it so much depth and detail to all the chapters. Great change!!

Was it long?

This was long but I lost track of time. This was well written. It was sad, funny, serious and just everything. The narrator did an amazing job. I could tell who every character was. This was a good good read/listen. Kudos!!

No means no

Ugh. The h bugged me so much because she was such a pushover. The chemistry between the H and h wasn’t flushed out enough and it came across as unbelievable.

Also, if you do end up purchasing this book, get the regular version. The music was distracting and not mixed well with the narration.

Background music has a negative impact on listening experience

Another brilliant book that I had read as e-book before listening to this audio version. Frustrating to have an otherwise good performance negatively impacted by the constant background music. Frantic searches for «turn music down or off» didn’t lead to any results.

Background music

Hates the background music. So distracting and does nothing for the story. Please don’t do this any longer.

Music

The music absolutely ruined the recording. I muddled through it because I wanted to hear the story but if I found another one with that kind of music on it I would return it.

Distracting music

The booktrack music is really distracting and would be better without it. I think the narrator helps to paint the picture of Nina and do not mind accent.
