Narrator killed the story!

I honestly tried over a dozen times to get through this audio book but I eventually had to tap out! The narrator made this the most painful story to listen to. I deleted it without first fishing the story and just mined on to the next book😣

Great book but....

ann Rice is an amazing writer and this book is amazing. However, I had a huge problem with the narrator in this story. he was muffled and quiet and not clear throughout the story. there was times that I has to hit the rewind button. I do not think it was his I just think it was the quality of the recording. the producer of this book should have known this and fixed it before this ever went to production!!

Enchanting but not a Vampire Chronicle

Did Graeme Malcolm do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I enjoyed his overall narration and he was a perfect match for the voice of david but i did not like how he voiced other key characters in the story.

Was Merrick worth the listening time?

This book was a great read and is definitely one of Anne Rice's better novels.

Any additional comments?

If you came to this book hoping for the next exciting installment of the vampire chronicle series you might be very disappointed. The book is a good read but aside from the fact the book is narrated by one of our beloved vampires there is maybe a third of the content of the book that actually focuses on them. This book clearly fulfilled a desire of the authors to do a cross over of her two series the vampire chronicles and the mayfairer witches but doesn't really focus on either one.

disappointing for Anne Rice.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, because it seems as though she was picking previous characters and re-telling parts of their stories. Too tame for Anne Rice.

Would you ever listen to anything by Anne Rice again?

I don't know.

What about Graeme Malcolm’s performance did you like?

I like his voice; very pleasant.

Do you think Merrick needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Definitely not. She does not play a substantial role. She is mostly listening.

Good

It was a good book to read. Not at all like Anne's other vampire books but just as good. I loved Merrick she is a cool character and very powerful.

Merrick (Unabridged)

A moving a tale as only Anne Rice can tell. The story line flows flawlessly

Graeme Malcolm, an exceptional reading, pleasant to listen too.
Vocal tones and inflections done with prefection.
