I have read all the books in this series and enjoyed them. This story is not the best but is worth reading - not worth listening to. The narrator makes the characters sound like back country hicks and uses intonation that is inappropriate for what is happening at that point in the story. An example is where a teenage boy is made to sound like a breathless winsome little girl. In places the women come across as whining but they are not. Like all irritants once noticed they become more obvious and for me spoilt my enjoyment. I like to revisit stories but this is one where I will be reading the story not Nika Solviero.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
no it was not time well spent....the narrator was so bad i would start thinking of other things
What didn’t you like about Nika Solviero’s performance?
she made some of the characters sound like they were mentally slow. you could hear her taking a breath after a long sentence.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
i love the book, that is why i bought the audible. i am sorry i bought the audible.

Would you listen to The Marine's E-Mail Order Bride again? Why?
I can't even listen through the first hour...the narrator keeps swallowing so loud it is irritating. May be petty but I'm wearing headphones and it is right in my ear. I can't concentrate or listen to the story completely because of it.
How could the performance have been better?
turn of the recorder when you are swallowing so loudly!
