Tough 2 Hear With Background Music & Sound Effects


I found this story to be compelling but the side of sound effects and background music overwhelming. It is unfortunate as I wanted to hear the book but it was lost in a lot of noise.


The narration was good, when I could hear it. K. Anderson Yancy sent me an email before I listened explaining the type of performance I should expect (think of families gathered round the radio in the 30's, listening to stories and shows-before the advent of TV.) Perhaps if things were a bit quieter [except the narration] I'd have enjoyed it more.

Notes: no warning here.

- DK "No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!"

TRAGICALLY BEAUTIFUL!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If they liked the classics and tragic love stories...then absolutely yes!!!


What was one of the most memorable moments of Letter from an Unknown Woman?

I will remember all of this short story!


What does Heather Wood and K. Anderson Yancy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She was incredible..I give her a 5+..but the production was a little over the top, so I gave the performance a 4...the production was not necessary...Heather could have carried this all on her own!


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Oh my...this would be a brilliant film....a winner indeed!


Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

This was a beautifully written and narrated tragic tale of unrequited love...a young girl becomes obsessed with a man in her building and through out the years takes every chance meeting and stays close to him..they have a love affair of sorts, but he is a ladies man and never keeps her close to him or even remembers her...she has a son by him, and loses him..this death devastates her and everything comes out in a letter and she dies...Nowadays her behavior would be considered stalking...lol Beautiful and well worth a listen!
