Publisher's Summary

Forty-six-year-old divorcée Christine is finally happy - or so she thinks. She has an amazing boyfriend but she also has a drama-filled family she fears might scare him off. And when Christine spies her dependable Aunt Inge in the company of a man who is most certainly not her husband, it sends the family drama into overdrive - and delivers an unexpected wake-up call to Christine. Because after witnessing the newfound passion with which 60-something Inge is tackling each day, Christine becomes aware of the mounting frustrations in her supposedly fabulous life. Sick and tired of playing it safe, Christine finally decides the time has come to make some big changes. But will her quest for a new lease on life ruin her hard-won happiness? Or will she discover a joy she never imagined possible?

Good Narrator if you listen at speed 1.25 or 1.5

What did you love best about Tidal Shift?

It was a fun family story with all the misunderstanding that can happen in a family.

What aspect of Teri Clark Linden’s performance would you have changed?

I am not sure but I think that somehow the performance was slowed down because I listened to other audio samples of books narrated by Teri Clark Linden and she did not speak as slowly as she did in this audio

Any additional comments?

For those of you who gave up on the listen, Please give it another try but speed it up. It is an enjoyable story.

The worst narration in all of my years w/Audible

Would you try another book from Dora Heldt and Jamie Lee Searle (translator) and/or Teri Clark Linden?

The story is fluff and humorous -- just what I was looking for. But it is as if the narrator is reading to developmentally challenged first graders. Occasionally she loses herself and speaks in normal cadence, but that is very rare.

Would you be willing to try another one of Teri Clark Linden’s performances?

Never.

Nice story spoilt by terrible narration

What didn’t you like about Teri Clark Linden’s performance?

I know this was a translation but why was it read as if the listeners had only a basic knowledge of English. The only way I was able to get over the awful narration was by being too busy to care unpacking into a new house. I'm glad I persevered because I enjoyed the story.

Really bad narration

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

I could not listen to this audio book, the narration was so bad. Tried to return it but unable to.

Has Tidal Shift put you off other books in this genre?

yes

What didn’t you like about Teri Clark Linden’s performance?

Stilted, did not flow unlike most audible books it sounded like she was reading it straight off, the characters also did not come over well.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, frustration
