Disappointing narration

What disappointed you about Love Only Once?

The narration was bad. There are a lot of male roles in JL's Malory series and this narrator does not have the voice to play men. It ruined the books for me.


Would you be willing to try another one of Laural Merlington’s performances?

It depends on the book. If the main characters are female then yes I would. But she does not have the voice or range to play male characters.


Any additional comments?

When you have a series and the main characters are male, a male narrator or very versatile female should do the narration. It is hard for me to understand how the production staff can allow this quality to come to Audible

UGH! Read it rather than listen to it.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

i would recommend someone read this book. the narration detracted from the story.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

The hero of the book sounded like an old woman -- as did every other man. And every now and then I'd detect a bit of "less than proper aristocratic" accent on the hero as the narrator was affecting a British accent (it was not natural). I may have enjoyed the story more with the right narrator. As it is, this is the first Johanna Lindsey book I've listened to (I've read and enjoyed her stories) and I'm seriously doubting I can get through the series with this narrator. What a shame as the reviews indicate the series is a good one.
