Description

A talented sailor, Ally is about to compete in one of the world's most challenging yacht races when she hears the news of her adoptive father's sudden death.

In the aftermath of the harrowing events that follow, Ally pursues the clues her father left her to the icy beauty of Norway. There, she begins to discover how her story is inextricably bound to that of a young unknown singer, Anna Landvik, who lived there over 100 years before.

Critiques

"What an absolutely fantastic storyteller - I was immediately immersed in the story, and absolutely compelled." (Katherine Webb on The Seven Sisters)

une histoire magnifique, un suspens qui nous tient en haleine, la roue de la vie tournant sur plusieurs générations, ce livre contient tous les éléments pour en faire une valeur sûre dont je recommande la lecture. juste un petit bémol : la voix des personnes masculins n'était pas très réussie.

Terrible pronunciation of Norwegian words

I really liked the storyline, but I did not enjoy the narration. I'm not found of entire books read in faux accents, and I cringed every time the narrator pronunced a Norwegian word! (And there are a lot of them, and not even hard ones). I guess that a non-Norwegian listener won't find this as bothering as me, but this ruined a lot of the listening experience for me, at least in the first part of the book. Aside from this, it was interesting to listen to a book set in Norway.

Terrible Narration Ruins It

I'm so disappointed in this adaptation as I had just finished "The Seven Sisters" and was hoping to move to the next book.

I simply can't get past the terrible narration. The accent is abysmal and so distracting that I've given up on this book.

TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE NARRATION! IT RUINS THE STORY

I read the first book in this series "The Seven Sisters" and wanted to continue with the story of the next sister.... BUT I haven't even finished the book yet, and I CANNOT STAND the narrator!!! I've been trying to figure out which one is the main narrator, and went online to each of their websites and listened to their voices, so I'm pretty sure the narrator who does the girls' voices is Noreen Leighton, but not positive. Anyway, she is simply awful! She tries to do the sisters' French accents, but narrates with a clipped, German-like cadence. It's like hearing fingernails on a blackboard! I know the story will be good as the first book had a very good story, but WHY did either Audible or the author pick this completely terrible narrator??? It's so difficult to listen to her on Audible! I'm not sure what voice(s) the other narrator is doing - I haven't heard yet, I don't think. Unless, Rachel Lincoln is the girls' voices and Noreen Leighton is the boys. Not sure, but whoever is doing what, I cannot STAND listening to the voices! Please don't have them do ANY other books, especially from this series. I won't be able to download them from Audible, but will have to buy the book and read it for myself - which I don't want to do as I do like to listen as I'm driving. Just don't use these narrators anymore!! UGH!

Irritating narration

Any additional comments?

As others have said - the pronunciation of Norwegian words was truly horrible. They weren't even hard words in Norwegian. Was it not possible to find someone who speaks Norwegian to do the narration? Or at least talk to the people doing the narration and coach them? It was very distracting and really took away from the story for me. Which is sad because I was really looking forward to a book that took place partially in Norway.

The narrator/s are terrible

Would you consider the audio edition of The Storm Sister to be better than the print version?

I am from Norway and the norwegian narration is terrible. The Swiz/French is just annoing. I should have read the printed version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Anna

How could the performance have been better?

Just read it and keep it in english.

The narration was irritating!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narration!!

What did you like best about this story?

It was a bit different from the usual romance story line.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This is the first review that I have written. I have listened to well over 100 audiobooks and this one stood out because I found the narration to be well below the quality that I have come to expect. The phrasing was done so poorly that I could hardly believe it and at times actually got me confused---pauses in the middle of a phrase between subject and predicate, etc. I was actually talking to myself in my disbelief and irritation. I kept listening because I couldn't believe that Audible would let this get by, hoping that it would improve and then I got sufficiently caught up in the story to tough it out.

Also the 2nd narrator's accent was "off" and sounded odd, more like a speech impediment

Any additional comments?

I don't care if you post this or feel free to paraphrase because I know it is harsh and likely insulting--I just want you to know how disappointed in Audible I am. I am not exaggerating. This was 4th grade level reading. This was not a performance. I should have just stopped listening but the story was just interesting enough to keep me hopeful.

Storm Sister Voice Lacking

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this incredible series to all friends - but, the voice in this Audible performance is almost impossible to listen to! The performance of The Seven Sisters was terrific, believable, as if you were right there and could not stop listening. Something went haywire when they hired this reader - she doesn't sound like a sailor, sounds affected and is very difficult to listen to. So dissapointed as this was supposed to help us drive 3 days and although we tried every speed to vary her voice, we finally turned it off and listened to music. Bummer! Lucinda, your books are wonderful...this reader does not measure up - please redo!!!!

How could the performance have been better?

Get a new reader!

Any additional comments?

This is a fantastic series - can't wait for more...but, use a reader as in the first book - she was terrific!

Worst narration of any book I have listened to.

Where does The Storm Sister rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

They story was very good, so good I bought the Kindle edition so I could follow along as I could not understand the Norwegian words. Swedish, my language, and Norwegian are so close in pronunciation I am able to communicate to a Norwegian speaker without issue. This narrator pronunciation was horrific and detracted from the story, (hence the reason for the Kindle book) and the French accent was laughable as it was annoying. Big disappointment after the wonderful narration of the first book in the series. PLEASE do not use the same narrator for future books!!!!

What did you like best about this story?

Character development!

Would you be willing to try another one of Noreen Leighton and Rachel Lincoln ’s performances?

NEVER.

Who was the most memorable character of The Storm Sister and why?

Alley

Good story - bad performance

The lisp of one of the speakers and the fake French accents spoiled the pleasure.

Good story badly narrated.

I seldom had an audio book that was this badly narrated. Why the false French accent throughout the book. And the way the men spoke. It was awful. l literally forced myself through this book. Definitely not doing that again. Sorry.

Terrible speaker

Unfortunately this speaker does a pretty bad job personifying the different characters in the story. The plot is otherwise quite fascinating.

Again a very good story!

At first I thought I would stop listening to this book because of this terrible fake french accent. But surpisingly I got used to it and above all the story is great! I am looking forward to listening to the next one.

Fesselnde Geschichte

Auch das zweite Buch ist fesselnd und wunderschön geschrieben. Die Stimme der Sprecherin mach dich nicht so sehr wie im ersten Buch wegen des starken französischen Akzent, der vielleicht nicht nötig gewesen wäre.

Narrator is realy bad

Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von The Storm Sister für besser als das Buch?

At first I have to say that I realy love the book. The story is so lovley and interesting.
But the narrator with it's poor french acent makes it so hard to listen. I don't know what woth this should give to the book. On several occaisions I was just an inch away from tunring the book back in and start anew in German...

Wie hätte das Hörbuch besser vorgetragen werden können?

Please don't use acents in other langauges. This is anoying and bad to understand
