Would you consider the audio edition of Counterbalance to be better than the print version?
I really like Kory's voice. It's sweet and quirky—a little young—but he has the right inflections for this type of geek gone billionaire story.
But just because you have a killer voice doesn't mean you have a killer performance. It happens to the best, and unfortunately, Counterbalance doesn't showcase Kory's strengths as a narrator.
In the beginning I really liked the monotonous tempo. This is one of my favorite Kelly Moran books, and I always pictured Xavier being this way. As I transitioned to the end of the book, I was craving a different style of narration; something with more emotion and vulnerability. I had a difficult time assimilating with Kory's interpretation of the characters near the climax even though the voices were done well.
There are some sound quality issues particularly background noise and I could hear Kory swallowing throughout the audiobook. In fact, maybe the sound quality is too good on this one. Kory also sounded thirsty... which made me really thirsty!... Hur hur. Thirsty for LOVE!
Kory Getman is a YES, but this isn't my favorite narration.
