Critic Reviews

"Actress Trini Alvarado gives a performance consistent with her previous narrations in this series. She projects a youthful, but strong character for Alanna; this is her outstanding strength." (School Library Journal)

The twins loved it.

Their only complaint was that it was over too soon.
Thank you for another great installment.

Amazing Narration

Would you consider the audio edition of The Woman Who Rides Like a Man to be better than the print version?

Yes, but only because of the amazing narration by Trini Alvarado. She did a wonderful job distinguishing each character.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Woman Who Rides Like a Man?

The first time the reader meets Kara, Ishak, and Kourrem. Trini's accents for them really added something to the story.

Have you listened to any of Trini Alvarado’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. I believe this to be one of her better one performances.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

(I'm not very good at coming up with tag lines.) Perhaps, "Sometimes you have to forge ahead alone when everyone else is against you."

Any additional comments?

This is really good, in either audio book or book form, and I think the fourth book in the series is even better. If you enjoyed this one, definitely go check out "Lioness Rampant"!

Trini does well

I enjoyed listening to Trini's voice. I have silently read this book 3 times before getting the audiobook, and I like it just as much. there have been many other readers, where I can't even finish the sample! I look forward to listening to book 4, as long as Trini reads it.
