Fantastic yet again!!
All I could ask for in an audiobook...
Despite being a caricature-sounding novel, this audiobook is an honest effort, beautifully done. The novel is well-written, a book about two broken people who don't know how to love each other but do so anyway. Using free United Kingdom based sound effects, this novel is skillfully added to and made into a novel with a little bit of romance, a little bit of suspense, with all of the wonderful qualities that I could ask for in a modern Maltese Falcon-esque interpretation story.
My favourite character for someone that I would want to be would be Elizabeth, because I can best understand her point of view. My favourite character as a fallible love-interest is Gabriel, because I truly understand why he is how he is. My favourite character overall is Tilly, because she knows all of the principles and loves them anyway.
I loved his passion and genuine effort of getting into each character's point of view. I laughed because, in truth, he doesn't do a very believable woman's voice, but still, his woman were full of honest feelings. Even though his accents are very imperfect, they are a piece of honest artwork, and I loved them. I feel that this narrator made every effort that I could ask for to read these novels well.
Team Gabriel or Team Elizabeth?
I believe in audiobooks as a performance art. It is more important to me that a novel's rendering is honest than that it is perfectly realistic. As a series, I would definitely choose to continue to read this set of books, and listen to the audiobooks, moving on to Jake and Brianna's story. This is a real complement, because, for me personally, I usually can't stand/don't have the attention span to listen to more than one set of character's stories per narrator. For example, I loved the novel, "Grim," and then the novel, "Ynyr" by author M. K. Eidem. I didn't enjoy the in-between novels (that were made into audiobooks, "Oryon" and "Wray",) as much because the same narrators that did "Grim" did them as well, and those novels' characters' point of views were too much of a stretch for that original set of narrators, in my opinion (as well, those novels didn't present new ideas, just regurgitated existing ones). The two novels that were done between "Ynyr" and "Grim" sounded like "Grim" repeated, to me. Thanks for the giving me the opportunity to say what I think!
