E Janae (Blacktop, from eBook Discovery I voluntarily review this book This is my honest review This review is mostly to comment on what an audio reader gives or takes awayrom a book I definitely got the eeling this book would have been better probably 4 stars had I read it myself Jill Tanner is consistently irritating in her reading of books or me Here s a rundown of things she does that irritate the heck out of me and ruin a book many good rundown of things she does that irritate the heck out of me and ruin a book many good Her male voices sound too eminine That said she still manages to give them an unfemininely annoying uality Even though they aren t deep enough to resonate as a man without adding too much of my own imagination they are dintinctly gruff and nasally It s disconcerting to add this much of my own ignore reader actor to get past it and stay ocused on the writer s work itself2 Her emales sound too old or their ages A lot of readers have this problem or me Many times the narrator is an older woman and older women s voices tend to drop a bit rom when they were younger Many great readers can give their voice a bit higher note without sounding sueaky to get by this problem It s uite markedly lacking with
"tanner when her "
when her is supposed to be 20 22 years old yet sounds 40 50 It s just another uality that takes away rom the book 3 She has little to no voice inflection change to each of the characters unless she throws on a heavy cockney accent to some of them In this one the hero was an American but he sounded like any other British character in the story I understood that people in America in the late 1700 s may very well have had British accents still but his character was born and raised in America and the accent was as heavy as ever She should have at least toned it down 4 In this one Tanner did what is my number 1 pet peeve on narrators which was she made them all sound Dont Hex with Texas (Enchanted, Inc., fairly cynical and unlikeable in her delivery The hero sounds perpetually pissed off at everyone and everything with the voice inflections she gives him Goodman can walk aine line anyway with how antagonistic she can write her characters and Tanner made me hate this hero even when I started realizing toward the end of the middle that the book was getting better I was having to REALLY edify my listening to get past her rendition of the hero especially Neither hero nor heroine were that likeable to begin with through half the book due to her narration Noah treated the heroine with overwhelming distain Spanish Dagger (China Bayles, for her lying and Jessa well lied at every turn to him over and over which even wore me out With this type of premise Ielt it was ESSENTIAL that the reader should put a LOT of empathy into the delivery of each character so that I the listener could at least try "to appreciate where they were coming rom and why they were so validated in their positions and "appreciate where they were coming rom and why they were so validated in their positions and Instead Tanner made the hero so gumpy and grouchy and just plain MEAN to the heroine SO MUCH that I hated him and didn t North feel a scrap of sympathyor his position It didn t make any sense that I should be that unfeeling or him when the heroine was lying her pants off and deceiving him CONSTANTLY She was supposed to have very good reasons or doing so but agian no empathy injection into the character by the reader just left me Dead Giveaway feeling cold 4 Spots where the Hh were supposed to be havingun FINALLY and this is a REEEALLLY LOOONNNNGGG book she gave no lightness or Andrew Lost In the Kitchen fun spark sounds to at all Just didn t make me believe it 5 Finally is it possible to make a villainous sound like a total biddy to the point where I hated her than I even Their marriage vows But baby Gideon and her own hidden secrets must be protected even as Noah's passionate demands tempt her to trust him with everything the truth her life and her heartLead To True PassionsNoah has every intention of getting his duerom the cunning emale who's. ,
