Review 1: Nine Perfect Strangers audiobook by Nikki Trulen
Everyone Has Already Said It…
And I wish I would have listened. The story itself is just okay. The narration is painful! I sped it up to 1.25x, but it was still very distracting and hard to get through. She ends many of the sentences with that question tone – and there isn’t much of a distinction between characters. I really had to bite down and power through this one. I shouldn’t have. Hoping the narration is retouched in the future – because it’s pretty terrible.
Review 2: Nine Perfect Strangers audiobook by Anonymous User
Perhaps she accidentally published the draft?
This book was a supreme letdown and I am pretty positive we read the draft! The potential was there but the storyline was disjointed and random thoughts were thrown in at various points and seemed like their primary function was just to lengthen pages. It seemed like the author couldn’t quite figure out what type of book she was writing or where she wanted to go with the character development and plot, and finally just threw something together. Like “oooh this sounds interesting maybe I should write that! And then ooh this too, let’s put that here! And oh I just remembered I wanted to write that let’s add it all the way at the end!” I started and stopped this book four times before I finally made it all through because of how poorly connected all the details were. Every time I thought “wow this is about to get good” some ridiculous thought was entered and the climax fell flat.
As for the narrator I didn’t think it was as horrible as the others said and to test that idea I also read the book in paper. The story sucks and the narrator tried to save it. The only irritating thing about the narration to me was that she ended each sentence in an up-note, like the sentence was a question rather than a statement. I agree the reading could have been sped up because doing so would have made the book sound more interesting but again if you are really paying attention to the development of the story rather than a feeling of excitement from rapidly read details, then you’ll be able to hear through the speed and realize that the book simply missed its mark.
Review 3: Nine Perfect Strangers audiobook by C. Klein
Horrible terrible experience full of grotesque cliches and dreadful plot. So bad I want my money back and wish that I could charge for my time. I’ve read all of Liane Moriarty’s books and was hoping for a similar experience and am totally disappointed. Did no one edit this garbage and tell the author heck no!?!?
