  1. Hmmm... I'm not sure what I think about this narrator. Maybe it's just the excerpt, but it sounds a little flat.

    However, this book cover has been intriguing me ever since we got it in at my store. And there are very few narrators I don't end up enjoying even if I find them odd at first :)

  2. I like this one better than the one yesterday (Burn for Burn). I still don't know if I could listen to the whole book all the way through.

  3. Hmm this narrator sounds like a little squeaky girl. She's also kinda monotone. Why is it so hard to get a good narrator?

  4. This has been the best one yet. The enunciation and emotions aren't over done and the feeling of despair comes through quite well without overkill.

  5. This narrator isn't great for me, but sometimes it takes a bit for a reader to grow on me. It might just be this particular excerpt, but she seems too quiet and almost like she is losing her voice. I can tell she is trying to show the emotion, but I'm not convinced of it. I do think she is a voice I would get used to quickly though. It's not annoying like some that I've heard.

  11. The voice didn't jump out to me for this character but I hope the tone and timbre change for each character, the synopsis seems interesting!!

  12. I love the way the narrator puts emotion into her voice. I can't resist!

  13. She does sound kind of monotone, but I'm sure it's to set the mood of the character. Hopefully it's not that way through the whole book.

  14. This one alright but she lacks the emotion needed to really make this story intersting enough to stick with. I think that I would fall asleep after listening for a while. Thanks for asking.

  17. She sounds like a little girl! lol Doesn't sound like there's too much emotion in her voice either.

  18. The narrator sounds exactly like the girl on the cover! She sounds young and a little creepy which probably matches the book too!
