I enjoyed this variation. The writing flowed nicely. The narrators mispronounced words pulled me out if the story quite a bit however I still felt invested in the storyline.

Nice story. Male narrator was great. Female narrator was too slow and whispery. I had to speed up the chapters she narrated. It was annoying to have to do that so some were skipped completely.

One of my favourite variations

I very much enjoyed this variation. The characters were great. I liked that there wasn’t angst just for the sake of it. There were some lough out loud moments and I found myself smiling throughout.
Thoroughly enjoyable and I hope Ms Altman writes more in this genre. A great storyteller.
Narration by Ms Zimmerman was perfect as usual.

I listened to the audiobook. The story kept me engaged. I didn’t feel the chemistry between these two characters for a while. The narrator performed the dialogue really well however the third person parts were quite monotone and fast with sentences sounding like they ran together.

Great twist

Wow, great twist. Narrators were ok. I had trouble differentiating between secondary characters as there was very little voice change. It got a bit confusing as to who was speaking at times. I liked the tone of the voices but the male narrator could have been more emotive.

Not for me

I have enjoyed a few other books from this author however Cinderella Undone was below par. The main character was not likeable at all. The female narrator was fine with the female character but I had trouble distinguishing between characters as her male voice was not noticeably different. This made it difficult to follow at times. The male narrator read so slowly that I had to increase the speed to get through his chapters. He was so completely overdramatic that it was laughable to the point of ridiculousness.
Skip this listen and choose another of Ms Snow’s books.

Overall, a good story.

Laney did not deserve Kam. She drove me crazy. Kam is the perfect book boyfriend though. Narrators were perfect

I loved the characters old and new. I really liked the way the two main characters communicated. Refreshing! I had a smile on my face listening to this one. Perfect narrators brought the characters to life. A great read!

Fantastic radio show. All narrators were perfect. I found the story was a little blah though. To me, it felt like the story was fashioned around squeezing in lots of characters for the audio. Maybe start off with a great story first, then create the audio party.
Enjoyable listen, if only for the cast of favourite narrators.

Not a fave

The story was ok but the narration was soooo slow that I had to turn up the speed to make it bearable.
