Part 2 please.........
Yes. The direction provided for the narration. The length
By this author, it will be The Risk and Foolish.
The narration seemed forced. The breathy, hoarse, attempt and sexy delivery distracted for the story greatly. The incorrect emphasis on certain words made it appear that the sentence was ending when in fact it was not. I kept thinking the narrator's throat HAS to be sore. I would also have expressed the power of enunciating your words. There seemed to be an issue with pronouncing words that had an "x" in them i.e. expect, exactly. The author's grammatical errors were read as well. So the errors in word usage were highlighted.
I think with more practice under his belt and a good director this narrator has potential. I look forward to this growth.
Absolutely. It was an interesting story that I think has legs. Thugs or wannabe thugs on the DL love it. I love to get insight on what motivates one to act or not on lust/nature, etc. I would love for more character development and backstory. I felt like this was just a small "taste" of a story with huge potential.
I read the story first and found it entertaining -errors and all. However, after listening to the story, my review declined. Choosing the right narrator can make a break a story. Reading the story I envisioned masculine baritones for a few of the characters. Below is the review I provided after reading the book PRIOR to listening to it.
"Good story. A story I look forward to seeing what happens. The author's mind is a wonderful thing. There were a few issues: timeline consistencies, several grammatical errors, but the story was so interesting I almost didn't notice them. Proofread so the errors don't detract from the story.......and a good story it was sir"
Yes, this was an amazing audio book. Don't want to spoil it though.
