Couldn't Finish It

I purchased this audiobook because of the many rave reviews, but unfortunately mine wont be as kind. I didn't hold this to particularly high standards because it is a romance book, and went along with most of it until about the third section. The absolute worst thing about this audiobook is the narrator. She sounds like a little old lady, and the last thing I want is a little old lady (with a whiny voice) reading sex scenes to me. The narrator breathes heavy, swallows audibly, and has a halting way of delivering the script. And she absolutley butchers the main Comanche's way of speaking. She narrates the Indians in the same stereotypical way that most people say "how" when mimicking Native Americans, deep and drawn out, and absolutey awful for the main love interest. The book itself held my interest until the third segment. I allowed myself to believe that a Comanche could speak fluent English, and believed that he could fall in love with a white girl, but the story got repetitive very quickly. He abducts her, she fights back, he takes her home, she comes back, she tries to run away, he convinces her to stay, she runs away, he goes after her. It seemed like these Indians had nothing better to do than chase after her through the whole book. And she is such a prude I felt like screaming. Also, rape is a very prevalent theme. I wasn't offended or put out by it, but it just seemed like everyone got raped or was almost raped, and just when you think youve gotten past it they vividly describe an old rape. I guess overall my expectations were that if I managed to believe this English speaking Indian falls head over heels for a white girl and chases her all over the earth then at least take me the whole way-dont have him threaten to beat her or marry other wives, and please dont give him the voice of a typecast Indian.

Nice idea, but doesn't work.

The differences between Loretta and the comanche are never overcome. There is far too much between them. I will say that I liked the hero a great deal, and I was entirely openminded. I also felt very sad for the reality that is the Native American history. But all and all I didn't buy the story.
