Lovely voice but way too rushed

The narrator has a lovely voice, but she rushes along from the very first word through the whole narration as if this were a 60 second tv commercial!

No pauses at all. No inflection to distinguish different characters, especially male ones. Hopefully, the narrator will take some narration lessons to learn to slow down her reads and bring more finesse to them.

The story wasn't too bad though - just couldn't enjoy it with such a rushed narration.

4 Ride of her Life Stars


Who doesn’t love a good western themed story, I really enjoyed June and Harlan’s story.
She really needed a fresh start, and Harlan was a little leery of her but she proved to him she had what it took to be on the ranch.

I giggled a few times at June’s inner monologue; she was pretty taken with Harlan right off the bat.
Sparks fly, great short.

Again narration was ok for me not terrible at all she did a great job giving each person a voice. :D

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*
