Summary

Wanted: Bride. Must love children. Mortals need not apply.

Carlos Panterra is looking for a mate, a woman who will love and care for the young orphans he's recently taken under his wing (or paw, as the case may be). When the shape shifter spies the beautiful Caitlyn, it's like sunshine amidst the darkness. At last, he's found the perfect woman, except...

Caitlyn Whelan is mortal. Worse, her father is the head of a CIA agency bent on hunting the undead. Still, Caitlyn knows that Carlos is the man for her, shape shifter or not. So she jumps at the chance when her sister offers her a job to work with him, determined to show Carlos their attraction is more than just animal magnetism. But danger lurks in the night, and their unleashed, untamed passion might just get them both killed....

Where did this dreadful narrator come from?

I've read this story quite a few times since it first came out, absolutely loved it, and rated it 5 stars, but the audio.... the narrator is, by far, one of the worst I've ever heard. I'd have given this audio version a miss if I'd known how bad she is. The narrator is absolutely terrible at accents, with the Scottish ones warbling between Cockney and Aussie, the English accent varied between Cockney, Aussie and the American deep south, and the Brazilian sounding more like a cross between Irish and Aussie. She also appears to have seen way too many of those adverts for Haribo sweets that have adults with childish voices, because they all suffered from that and frequently gave the impression they'd been done by Looney Toons, Hannah Barbera or more often, Elmer Fudd. Totally ruined a terrific book.

Reader was not up to par!!!

What did you like best about Eat Prey Love? What did you like least?

The story itself was very good and I really like the series. The reader sounded like a little girl, therefore she spoiled the story for me.

What did you like best about this story?

I like that Shanna and her sister found each other again.

What didn’t you like about Gia St. Claire’s performance?

I didn't like her performance. I think she should stick to children or very young adult books.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A more mature reader would have helped.

Any additional comments?

I'm sorry but 500 plus year old vampires should not sound like little girls! It really helps listeners when you have good and consistent reader performances. It really sucks to find a good series and have a major disappointment with the reader performance.

All the men sound like leprechauns O.o

Horrible narrator! The story would probably be good if the men sounded manly and the women didn't sound like preppy highschoolers.

Good book, irritating narrator

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I like the story, the series has been great, and this story is on par with the rest of the series. The problem is with the narrator. Ms St Claire has a very sweet voice, but she sounds very, very young. I picture the female lead as a 12 year old because of the narrators voice. This narrator would be better suited for childrens books or young adult. Her Scottish and Portugese accents are better than a few other narrators that have read books in this series have been...I just find the youth of her voice very distracting.

Any additional comments?

This series seems to struggle with finding a really good narrator, the publisher needs to find someone who can handle different accents well, and that has the ability to do both male and female voices.

Out of all the Karen Sparks vampire books

This was my least favorite, to much happening. I guess I'm used to the vampires

Ick!

I hated the Caitlyn. Way to desperate with no self pride. There is "not giving up" but this was sickening from the word go. One second shock at the existence of vampires to full 4 alarm panties on fire and soaked the next. Not my kind of heroine.

Rough start, but gets better

Eat, Prey, Love ends better than it begins. The primary issue is that the heroine comes across as a bit juvenile, whining a lot over feeling abandoned by her sister, always crying, "Why?" If she were really feeling abandoned, would the girls just pick up where they left of as children, closer than ever? There have to be more subtle and less petulant ways to communicate that inner conflict. The narrator's "little girl" voice may contribute to that characterization as well. The heroine also seems to find it difficult to put 2 and 2 together, having to be told that her father kept her letters from her sister when there is more than enough clues to give her that information. My third complaint is that there is no build up from lust to love--just an off-hand comment that love is worth fighting for, when I didn't believe we'd gotten that far yet.

Having said that, once both characters realize that they love each other and the real object to them getting together is revealed, the book gets better. The heroine shows a lot more maturity and intelligence in the second half of the book, and the plot becomes more intricate and entertaining.

Reader is awful!

I stopped listen by halfway through Chapter 2. The reader sounds like she is either 6 or has been sucking on helium. I couldn’t listen to it.

Narrater is terrible

I really enjoy this series. However with this book I had to stop listening in the 4th chapter. Mostly all the women sound the same. The Scottish accents are hardly there at all.
