What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Different narrators. This is one of my favourite fantasy escapism books, because it is formulaic and an easy, comfortable, distracting read. But without a truly passionate, sincere sounding narrator, who can use the fantasy names and terms with a measure of confidence and sincerity, I bought the audio-book because of the story, but I consider the narration cringe-worthy for this genre. If they do the Cyborg series with these narrators, then I will be truly disappointed and may not even bother to get the audiobook at all, even though the Cyborg series is my favourite of her works.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I liked both Tiffany and Deek because they both showed courage and honour in reaching out for what they needed. Maybe a hair more Tiffany, but I liked Deek’s self honesty in his soliloquy. It allowed for us to really feel for him as a person.
Did Audrey Conway and BJ Pottsworth do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
What character would you cut from Tamed by the Beast?
Engle Steen. He was irritating, whiny, underdeveloped and static. A dime store novel villain.
Any additional comments?
I suggest a team like Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott, but not them, because I feel that they are overused. Try to find a strong, overly testosterone driven manly man, and a woman who has I.e. in this case hated her body her whole life but has become reconciled (and therefore humorous when speaking about it). I think, for the Cyborg series, a woman who has felt like a stranger, isolated, from most of those around her, for most of her life.
The audio crackled a few times. The story line was great. Although I felt there was too many sex scenes then the drama of the book.
I did enjoy it.
