Good story but disappointing narration

One of the narrators is very monotone which detracts from the enjoyment of the book. Agree with other reviews that lots of words are mispronounced.

Not impressed by narration

The narrator has a real problem pronouncing some English words, it's distracting when it happens.

Narrator ruins it

The stories are passable. But ugh! The narrators are horrendous. No vocal intonation not to mention pronouncing words incorrectly. Truly awful.

Not overly impressed by the narration or the story

The narrators mispronounce words all aver the place (for example, "runes" is a fairly simple word but the first nartrator gets it wrong throughout) which is irritating and discracting - as is the choice of a non-American to narrate a series that is full of American characters and set in America... Not such a good idea.

The second narrator, while American, is no better at pronunciation.

The basic premise of the story is failry good but the execution lacks a lot - especially in terms of continuity. Later scenes conflict with earlier details and, all in all, it seems disjointed and doesn't flow well. In fact, the lack of correct pronunciation seems to be the strongest thread of continuity.

I completely lost interest around chapetr nine of book four. It got to the point where I couldn't be bothered to listen any longer because I had lost all interest in what happened to the characters. I came to the realization that I'd zoned out of listening for several minutes while distracted by something on my computer screen, and that I really wasn't bothered by whether I'd missed anything critical to the story or not...

... Time to stop listening and find a book that is better written and narrated.

Made my ears bleed

The first 3 books made you like morgan and the second made you really dislike her. If they are good, why force people against their will. Then the storyline moves into Stockholm syndrome. The Story lines are not focused. Then there are two narrators. The second one made my ears bleed. Not only was her voice highly annoying, her monotone voice and apparent inability to pronounce words properly made the book seem a never ending torture. Spare you sanity and move on to something else.

Feels Unpolished!

It was difficult for me to get through the, the writer seems a bit all over the place. I like the concept but it was very unpolished and felts choppy. I have been really into witch series and this seems like it would be right down my alley and at a pretty good price.

Its not horrible but if is also no the best. I feel like it needs a rewrite and rework to make it feel more solid and complete.

I suggest you skip this one

I went to a play once call a Pass-Along-Exercise. Where each playwright only had access to the act right before theirs. So that from beginning to end it seems incredibly disjointed. That’s how this felt. The characters we are introduced to at the beginning resemble nothing by how they end up. The (supposedly) single author seems to forget her own plot points through the storyline.
Also the changing of narrator mid way is always a distraction for me and the second narrator mispronounced words through the whole reading. Again, an item that takes me out of the story. It’s was as if she had heard words before or never seen them in print at perhaps as if she had been programmed with words without the correct pronunciation included in her programming. Overall not a great experience

Narrator ruins the story

The first few books in this set are narrated by a British narrator who is competent. The last few books are narrated by another woman and honestly I have to say she may be the worst narrator I’ve ever heard. At first I thought it was a computer generated narration because her delivery was so flat. She also mispronounces many words. “His voice was like a bass drum” pronounced like bass fish. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ I like the stories but this is such a distraction that I’m about to give up on them entirely.

narrator

Not crazy about the over pronunciation/incorrect by the narrator. Other than that enjoyed this book.

Performance problems

I enjoyed the story but was very glad I got the boxed set because some of the books ended on a huge cliffhanger.

Narration was definitely hit and miss. The first narrator had a British accent which was a bit off-putting because the story takes place in Massachusetts. The narrator for the final 3 books consistently mispronounced words, or overpronounced them. I found myself correcting her, out loud. It definitely took away from my enjoyment of the story.

Chnages in narrators makes all the difference, Jo Nelson is great, Elizabeth Langelee not so much

Could be an interesting series but the narrator changes between books made such a complete difference in enjoyment as to turn me off. the accent, pacing and enjoyment of this series if Jo nelson had done the whole series would have been ,a joy. i likely would have given 5 stars for performance. But the soporific, mono-tonal voice and odd pacing-pronunciation of Elizabeth Langelee’s narration really ruins the flow of the series for the books she narrates.

I really enjoyed these stories

The tales got better and better. And darker. As others have noted, the first narrator using British accents makes no sense, but I really didn’t care. She does a good job and I just forgot the story takes place in the States. It really is not important. The second, American reader, is fine and sounds age-appropriate. I used 1 credit for hours of great tales.
