What did you like best about Revived? What did you like least?
This story line was more mature between the Leandro and India as apposed to Carrick and Andressa's in Revved.Ricky Pessoa's "Leandro" was spot on, a 4 star performance, you could "feel" his passion, lust, and love in his voice and words. His "India" voice needed a bit of work so the subtle Latino inflections would not be heard. Also "Carrick" was missing his Irish lilt, something that I came to enjoy in the first book of this series. Full well realizing this is make-believe, I still can't buy that a true medical professional would do harm to their career, especially one they worked so hard to achieve. But, that story line did injected angst and love into the book.Also, I was turned off by Kitty Silver's narration, giving her reading 1 1/2 stars. Her voice was "girl-like", but the character was a 30 year old mature woman. Her "Leandro" voice was WAY OFF!, in fact just awful.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
A bit abrupt, rushed. Just the mention of her brother Kit in a relationship with a character from the first book was out of nowhere. It felt like a throw in, because at no time was there ever a sentence, paragraph or partial chapter about his budding romance any other place in the book. The relationship between Leandro and India's son was a bit rushed also. A few times at a karting track doesn't translate into "he is my son" in the real world. But, then again, this is not reality is it.
Would you be willing to try another one of Kitty Silver and Ricky Pessoa ’s performances?
By Mr. Pessoa, yes - but work on losing the Latino accent in other English, Irish, characters.Ms. Silver - probably not.
Overall average of this narration would probably be 2.5 stars, mostly due to the female lead having more to read than the male character, or at least it seemed like I heard more of Ms.Silver's voice than I wanted. I actually found myself turning off the narration and skimming her parts and then listening to Mr. Pessoa's parts.
Difficult to discuss the story because (for me) the narration was... not great.
I couldn't tell who was what nationality and when 😐
