Hot story, cold narration

This audiobook badly needed a female narrator. Why Roberts (or, rather Robb) chose one for her In Death series and not for this one, I cannot comprehend. You could get used to the narrator after a while but it still bothered me that oftentimes you cannot distinguish which character was speaking because the transitions were not clear enough. Five stars for the book, four for the audiobook, for the above reason.

A Series You Should Include in Your Library

If you have read any of my past book reviews, you will know that I don’t believe in spoiler alerts. And following that sentiment let me tell you that Book 1 is good. I mean it is Nora Roberts…right? However, for some reason, I didn’t love the narration. The Irish accent was, as far as this South Texas Girl would think…spot on. The problem for me, I believe was the way the narrator seemed to rush through the female dialogue, making it seem somehow, cut off and thus, withholding her expression. In some ways, it was difficult, in Book 1, for me to connect with the family, Concannon. Relatable characters are what will invest a reader into the story. Don’t you agree? In fact, I am not sure that I would have continued the trilogy, had I not already owned the next two books. What a treasure I found, though.
It was in Book 2, BORN IN ICE, and narrated by the same gentlemen I might add, that I really was able to fall in love with this family. Oh, and fall in love, I did. What an amazing surprise it was for me too; enough, that is, to want to share my experience with you. I am not sure if I adapted to the narrator’s tempo, or if he slowed his pace and dynamics, but I loved him too.
I only just completed Book 2, and between you and me, I didn’t want it to end…and so it doesn’t…on to book 3 I go!
Credit Worthy – YES!

didn't like it.

Wont be downloading the rest of the trilogy. The narrator irritated me with the accent.

Couldn't listen past ist chapter

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

I couldn't listen to this book as the author read too fast to make it annoying. Tried twice but couldn't get past first chapter.
