This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Fresh in its originality When Norse Winds Blow is an engrossing journey into the era of the much-maligned Vikings.

A compelling and emotional tale, follow the lives of very memorable male and female characters whose destinies are changed forever by the combination of the forces of love, fierce battles and raids, and the coming together of different cultures.

This is an all-consuming story, one which makes you care what happens to the people.

Vikings were known throughout the world. They travelled far, reaching many countries. In previous times, Vikings were portrayed as mindless killers, but contrary to belief, apart from their enemies, to whom they showed no mercy, they are known to have integrated with various cultures in many places. Viking culture was the only one of that time to ensure their women were respected and given an equal place in Viking society.

I cannot recommend this audiobook

I am a voracious reader and commute approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes each day. I supplement my reading desire with great number of audio books and have heard some wonderful combinations of author and narrator- 'When Norse Winds Blow' is not among that group.
The author's pervasive use of reverse-scrambled prepositional phrases in combination with the narrator's cadence and tone just do not compliment each other. The narrator tends to read 3-4 words at a time with her own pauses injected awkwardly into the text which produces a choppy presentation. This book may be a good 'read' but I cannot recommend the audio format.
The story does not lack inter-personal drama, but it takes place in an almost nondescript environment.
