    Story
    "A good page turner"
    Would you listen to Rip Tide again? Why?

    No, I wouldn't listen to it again. The story was fairly predictable and there is nothing to be gained by listening to it again.


    What other book might you compare Rip Tide to, and why?

    Any selection of spy novels


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Julia Barrie?

    Not if I could help it. I felt her narration was feeble


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The narration of this story spoiled It for me. I nearly stopped listening after a couple of chapters. Why do women sound so "breathy" and gentile when narrating a story? It happens on the radio as well and it puts my teeth on edge. I am sure the heroine of this book did not speak in the manner the narrator portrayed. Her attempt at an American accent was laughable.

    Story
    "Good story very bad recording quality"

    Really enjoyed this story as with other Stella Rimington books.

    However, the standard of recording was very poor and muffled sounding.

    But for my enjoyment of the story and the performance of the narrator I would have returned it.

    For the record I am using good quality headphones and the enhanced standard recording of the audiobook download and have not had this problem with any of the several other recordings that I have listened too.
