Audiobook Review: For The Love of Ireland

by admin on March 13, 2014

  For The Love of Ireland by Judy Leslie  (Women’s Historical Fiction/Romance) Narration: Susanna Burney does a good job narrating the story. Her female voices are varied and easily enjoyable. Her male voices, while not decidedly masculine, are convincing once you become accustomed to hearing them in contrast to the feminine ones. Her pacing is […]

Audiobook Review: The Devil’s Match: The Devil DeVere

by admin on August 27, 2013

The Devil’s Match: The Devil DeVere by Victoria Vane Narration: As I mentioned in The Devil You Know, Eva Hathaway is the right narrator for this series. In this book, too, her pacing is perfect. Her continued narration of the series adds an appealing quality of familiarity to the voices of DeVere and Diana.  In […]

Audiobook Review: The Devil You Know: The Devil DeVere, Book 3

by admin on July 9, 2013

The Devil You Know: The Devil DeVere, Book 3 by  Victoria Vane   Narration: Eva Hathaway has a voice that is perfect for the period of this story.  Her male voices sound most masculine when the discourse involves both women and men. Moreover, once you get used to them, they pretty much register on the ear […]

Audiobook Review: Yesterday: A Novel of Reincarnation

by admin on June 18, 2013

 Yesterday: A Novel of Reincarnation by Samyann   (Historical Fiction/Romance)   Narration:  Darlene Allen is a good choice as narrator of this story. Her reading voice has a pendulum quality to it that allows listeners to slip easily in and out of present and past. That quality is her greatest contribution to the narration of this book. […]

Audiobook Review: Hunter: A Thriller

by admin on June 11, 2013

Hunter: A Thriller by Robert Bidinotto Narration: Conor Hall has a “settle in and be auditorily entertained” ambiance to his reading. His suite of male voices is  impressive and wonderful to hear. In this story, he does tend to use the same voice for the bad guys as he uses for some of the good ones. […]

Audiobook Review: Mountain Laurel

by admin on June 5, 2013

Mountain Laurel by Donna Fasano  (Clean Romance) Narration: Nicole Colburn’s narration comes to life when she is reading the dialogue, and there’s a lot of that. In addition, her male voices are reasonably convincing. Overall, her voice is seriously laid back and sometimes there’s a drone to it. Be sure to listen to the sample to see […]

Audiobook Review: Love in a Garden: What Happens After Happily Ever After

by admin on May 9, 2013

Love in a Garden: What Happens After Happily Ever After by Mia Jasper (Romance) Narration: I’m not sure where the story was recorded because the overall sound quality is somewhat suppressed. The narration is performed by the author, Mia Jasper. She doesn’t have a male voice, but all of her dialogue is conveyed well. Her […]

Audiobook Review: Désirée: The Bestselling Story of Napoleon’s First Love

by admin on February 22, 2013

Désirée: The Bestselling Story of Napoleon’s First Love by Annemarie Selinko (Romance/Historical Fiction) Narrator: Nicole Quinn Nicole  has a natural voice that is either liked or it isn’t. While this should apply to any narrator, in her case, there is a tremble quality to her voice to which some may not be able to adjust.  […]

Audiobook Review: M.C. Beaton’s Daphne

by admin on January 24, 2013

Daphne: The Six Sisters, Book 4 by M.C. Beaton Charlotte Anne Dore narrates this book. Her voice is fitting for the Regency period in which the story takes place. As I listened to her, I wanted to stop the mp3 and go watch Sense and Sensibility.  But while her performance with the narrative portion is […]
