Big disappointment

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A totally different performance. This was a much loved story, ruined by the narrator. I was happy to finally have this story available in a format that I could use, and sadly, downloaded it without listening to the preview. While I am sure that Mil Nicholson is a lovely person, her performance seemed to be a sad attempt at a caricature of a western. It would appear that either her or the director would base all of the characters other than the main one on the "whimsical sidekick" from the old black and white westerns. They all sound like Gabby Hayes. She voices Benteen Calder as a poor, female imitation of Clint Eastwood. Lorna's voice seems too high and flighty, and Spanish Bill? A Mexican? Perhaps she thought his last name was O'Malley. Her Spanish accent was remarkably Irish.


What other book might you compare This Calder Range to and why?

This is your typical bodice ripper romance, with a bit of a western flair.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

While I could listen to the narration of the story, after the initial shock of hearing a female, slightly English accent, the voice characterization was just terrible. I couldn't get past it, and was ripped from the story every time someone spoke...

Not worth using the credit

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Story could be good but can't get into it due to the AWFUL narration. Will have to try reading it instead. Never get a book with this narrator--no emotion or inflection in the reading. Just word after word.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

No inflection or emotion--VERY dry.
