Would you consider the audio edition of Better Than Good to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version but as far as narration goes I think Tyler Stevens is pretty much perfect for this, he really brings the story alive. I'd be happy to listen to this again and I haven't bought the print version so I guess that answers how I feel about it.

What other book might you compare Better Than Good to, and why?

Better Than Chance for obvious reasons.

What about Tyler Stevens’s performance did you like?

I liked the different voices he uses, the consistency of how he portrays different characters and the 'aliveness' he brings to the listening experience. I am hoping he's also going to do the third book in the series, because I can't imagine wanting to listen to anyone but him read it. I've listened to a lot of narrators, he's the first one that really stands out as excellent for me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Recommended if you like well written romance with a deft touch and without too much angst.

What made the experience of listening to Better Than Chance the most enjoyable?

Tyler Stevens without a doubt. I thought I'd find the Southern drawl annoying, but I not only got used to it very fast I fell in love with it. And he does all the voices brilliantly. Probably the best narrator I've listened to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Better Than Chance?

The river scene, though there were plenty of enjoyable ones.

What does Tyler Stevens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He narrates the story in a way that makes it come alive, very believable. Having heard him read this and the first book in the series I'm eagerly waiting for the audio to come out for the third one and hope that he'll be narrating that too.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was a lot of fun with a bit of angst and I loved it.
