Horrible Narrator

What would have made The Winning Hand better?

Another narrator.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Winning Hand?

Sorry, but I couldn't listen long enough to find anything memorable.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Angela Dawe?

Sandra Burr, Jenny Sterling, Davina Porter, etc.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment and anger as I had planned to order the entire series.


Any additional comments?

I read this series in hardback years ago and was delighted to find it on audio - that is until I heard Ms. Dawe speaking the part of Darcy - who sounds about 13. The sample was a male voice - deep, rich and very much in the role of Ms. Roberts' usual romantic characters, but when he and Darcy converse, Ms. Dawe's narration makes him creepy - like a much older man attempting to lure a child into a sexual liaison. Her particular rendition of Darcy's voice is further baffling as she reads other female characters in this book naturally - especially Blake's mother. Too bad she was chosen as the narrator because this book is one of the best in the series.

Waste of Credit

This is one of my favorite Nora Roberts books but the narration was beyond terrible. Not right for the story at all.
