Heart of the Sea

Would you consider the audio edition of Heart of the Sea to be better than the print version?

I did not read the print version but I would assume so.. listening to a story about the Irish with someone reading it with the Irish accent adds to the story.

Any additional comments?

I was sad when the series was over, I loved listening to Irish having Irish background my self. Feeling like old friends who are now gone .

Number one fan of Nora Roberts!

I not only liked this book it’s my favorite of all three. I have read (heard) since I am hearing it for the fifth time and will listen again in a few months time. Darcy is my favorite character since book one. I have told everyone who will listen to me about these books. Though these three are running neck to neck with the McGreger series.

Bad reader

This reader is so bad I didn't think I could finish it. The reader is atrocious. Stilted speaking, spaced out ever word, breathing stops in the middle of a sentence that breaks it apart incorrectly so that you almost miss that the rest of the sentence pertained to the earlier part. That kind of disruption ruins the story having to go back and make sense of it.

I don't understand how producers or directors don't fix these while being produced. In fact, I had to return the book because I can't listen to this ever again.

Terrible narration.

That was the most cringe worthy audible experience I have had. Could not finish the book.

Loved the story and the performance by Daniels

This third story is a well-written culmination of the Gallagher’s of Ardmore trilogy. It mainly focuses on Darcy, but the plot shares details and developments about the other characters that provides a satisfying resolution for all.
