The Ballad of Rosemunde

Would you consider the audio edition of The Ballad of Rosamunde to be better than the print version?

Only in the fact if that if one has little imagination, actually hearing the ballads was interesting, and done well.

What did you like best about this story?

Since Rosamunde was an important character to me in the first two books, I appreciate Ms. Delacroix writing this novella to tie up the ends so to speak. It did make me feel better to find out what happened to her.

Any additional comments?

I don't like to give away the story, but you must remember this is a novella... short, sweet and quick to the point. A very creative ending I thought and loved how it was written/narrated with much in ballad form.

Nice story and sweet read

Any additional comments?

The was a good story for a short story I would have liked to have seen more. It was nice to see the main characters get their HAE I enjoyed it but was lacking something. I can't put my finger on it. It might have been that I would have liked a longer story this was kind of short sweet and to the point. On stories this short there isn't to much you can say without giving the book away. Pick it up and give it a try it gives you some insight you might not have gotten. I give this a 3.5. I didn't care for it as much as I did the first one I read but it was a nice stead read.

The narrator does a great job her voice is smooth and full of emotion. There are no breaks that you can tell. She does a great job on the different character voices. I enjoyed listening to her very much. There is no background noise just a sweet accent that I thought was adorable.

The author does give you great characters that you can relate to. There is a lot of emotion that pulls at you. I say pick it up an give it a try and see what you think.
