As promised, my review after completing it. IT IS hard to get into, the narrator does really well to inhabit various characters, some narrators can ruin a book, but Dara Rosenburg does well. It probably took a while becauee there's not a lot of description initially. but it's a strong story, and doesn't give til almost the end of the book, just toward tge ends, all things come full circle and make sense. I rarely do spoilers, this is definitely not a book for spoilers. You need to dive in and get through all the pre-amble for it to make any sense, yes it's not one of those books you can skim through, each paragraph is revealing. Enjoy!
Good story but the narration was poor. Lady fish was done with a british narrator who did very good american voices unfortunately the narrator here was incapable of a british or any other accent other than american - shame would have been excellent with ladyfish's narrator.
"Romance with a Brain"
The series is captivating and riveting. Ms. Bramhall always does a great job of showing as many sides as possible while challenging our intellect.
The Writer is amazing. I loved every minute of the book. keeps you on the edge of your seat!!
"How a narrator can ruin a book."
I read reviews about this book and how some where upset that narrator had changed from the first book. I thought it was ok because it was actually different characters in the spotlight. However, you can't keep making mention of a British Accent that simply does not exist.
Not really sure.
Depends. This one wasn't a good selling point for her. The character voice was not good, she referred to Cassie as Casey multiple times.
I was excited about the second book, but just not the reader.
It wasn't a complete waste. Get the book and read it yourself would be my advice.
"NARRATOR WAS AWFUL - COULDN'T EVEN FINISH THE BOOK"
The narrator was ridiculously awful - What happened to Finn's accent? Why does Oz sound like a sleaze-basket? UGH, I ended up asking for a refund.
No, I'm actually interested in the story, so I'll end up reading it on Kindle.
Where do I start??? Crazy breathy voice that sounded like she was whining the whole time, unless of course she was butchering Finn's English accent, or the name of the bio-weapon, or....I couldn't even pay attention to the story line!
Super disappointed with the author for the selection of the narrator.
"Frightening Plot could be seen on CCN"
This without a doubt was the best story of this genre I have ever read/listened to. This is the first of Ms Bramhalls' offerings that I have read/listened to and I am totally blown away. The story involves two couples who are tied together without really knowing it. Ms Bramhill kept a great balance through out the book. It was almost like reading/listening two separate books until she weaved them together seamlessly. The pace was fast without being overwhelmed. I see this as Rizzoli and Isles, Cagney and Lacey, in a James Bondish type setting. The plot lines could have been taken directly out of news sources of today, frighteningly so. Being prior military and a cop to boot I found the story is believable and pretty much accurate. The only issue that I had dealing with the audio portion, and not necessarily her fault, was when she referred to the Britishs' MI6 as M(Sixteen) very minor. I was not aware of her previous offering of "Ladyfish" and as far as I am concerned, even though this is a sequel it can stand on its own. With that being said I will definitely read/listen to "Ladyfish." Wonderful job Andrea!!!
The plot in this sequel to Ladyfish is fun and complex. We get a new predictable love story, familiar characters, and some espionage that's actually interesting. Much more "story" than your average fan-fic style lesbian romance, which is a good thing! I just wish I'd read it instead of listening to it. The narrator is horrible to the point of grating.
First of all, Fin is British, she is not a prom queen prima donna. Her character is not written at all the way she is voiced, which is with no accent at all and a snooty, elementary school enunciation. Also, the narrator mispronounces words---often. Words like Valkyrie, and viscous (there is a lot of "viscious fluid" in this book) that are just nerve wracking.
Lastly, I have to say that I do love Oz. But I would love to smack her every time she says "baby" and receive a dollar for my efforts. I'd be richer than Trump! That's a writing thing, not a narration thing, but I know I could block it out from a printed version. If someone called me baby that often, I would run screaming to the hills.
Read this one--it's a fun and exciting story! But don't subject yourself to the narrated version.
"I enjoyed it."
It would have been better if it was narrated by the same woman who narrated Lady Fish.
"WHY WOULD YOU CHANGE THE NARRATOR??!!"
As much as I have been enjoying the storyline, I can not stand the narrator or her portrayal of the characters, especially after just having listened to Ladyfish.
The surprise and disappointment when I heard the characters "voices" for the first time.
The inability to relate this book to Ladyfish (its predecessor) due to the lack of accents and change in "personas" of the characters.
If they had kept Heather Wilds as the narrator.
"story was good. narator was crap"
narator was crap. story saved the day
sounded like a cartoon. should be more grown up
"worst narration EVER...."
a different narrator plain and simple...
lol... a better narrator!
well, it may need to be a better story for Abby Craden, but she is the best Narrator. Or even Stella Bloom.
