Narration sort of killed it
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Probably not. While some of the stories were actually pretty good, some even unique and interesting, the narration was almost painful to listen to much of the time. I assume it is because someone coached them to read it the way they all did,
What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?
The narration was so distracting that it actually threw cold water on the story. Since all the narrators read exactly the same way, I have to assume they were told to read it that way. Annunciation of every word and using a hard "a" any time an "a" appears in a sentence is not a natural way to speak, so it detracts from the story. I've heard technical presentations which were read less formally than this. Sadly, some of the stories were actually pretty good, but the odd way in which the narrator (often the author) read it made it hard to listen to. Also at times, the narrator (I think it was usually Ginger) would start the story with the classic high pitch "bimbo" sort of sound, then it would get dropped somewhere along the way and she would go back to her normal voice. Her own voice was fine, so there really wasn't a need to attempt to do something different, especially when it would not be held for the whole story (not that I'd want it to). Whoever told these ladies to read it the way they did needs to stop. It could have been so much better if they were simply allowed to read the stories in a more casual fashion. Also, during the "exciting" bits of the stories, there just wasn't always the excitement or emotion that there should be to really draw you in.
Any additional comments?
I found it interesting that these stories were written by women. I actually went back and checked after I had listened to probably half the book, because it didn't have the feel of erotica written by women. Little emphasis on anything other than penetration in many cases.
