What disappointed you about Change of Heart?
This is such a poorly written story. What was missing for me was any sort of build up of characters, or emotions that I would expect to feel with the characters. Listening to it was like watching a really bad teen movie.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I *might* give KA Moll another chance, just to make sure this book isn't an unfortunate accident. Otherwise, it's back to my favorites - Radclyffe, Georgia Beers, Julie Blair, Melissa Brayden, Kim Baldwin, Julie Cannon, Jae, Gerri Hill, Erin Dutton...and several others.
What does Michele Musso bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I thought the narrator did a good job with the reading. Every character has their own distinct voice. In some places, there was no delay where I feel like there should have been - between scenes, if you will. I'm not sure if that's an issue with the narrator or editor, though.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Annoyance, and lots of eye rolling when things seemed to happen randomly without any background, or when people were single-mindedly stereotypical. Characters weren't well-rounded and scenes skipped ahead, leaving out important information.
Any additional comments?
I don't recommend this book. Too many other good lesfic books out there on audible. But if you do start it, you probably will listen to the end. Just like you'll watch until the end of that teen movie...
Any additional comments?
KA Moll has once again delivered a detailed character study of women who are struggling with their past to make a future for themselves. Change of Heart carries less burden than the backstories of her characters from "Haunting Love" but still deals with issues of alcoholism, desertion, family and rejection. On the surface, it’s hard to believe it’s a love story.
Narrator Michele Musso seems unphased by the complexity of KA Moll’s well-defined characters, delivering an emotionally complex reading that breathes life into the tumultuous worlds of Jack and Courtney. From their controlled political engagements to their heartfelt trials and tribulations, Musso helps the listener experience the emotion, making for a highly engaging production. Her depictions of supporting characters gives each a unique vibe, with particular excellence in her representation of Jack and Courtney’s parents.
