My Sister in Isolation

I love the book, have re-read it so many times, the only downfall was in the pronounciation of names which made it difficult to listen too, as after reading it for 20 years you become accustomed to your own annunciation.

Missing details, monotonous narrative

For supposed ice age based on a hunting people, the background details are sketchy at best. While Jean M Auel gets a bit carried away with the background details at times, this series lacks all the requisite background to frame the series into n ancient past. It could just as easily have been 200 years ago as 9,000 years. The narration continues in such a monotonous voice that it is a terrific cure for insomnia. At least all the "taking of women" avoids graphic details.

fabulous

I've read this multiple times, but this was the first time I've listened on audio. This made a huge difference in the story, and totally transported me. The pronunciations I had gotten wrong so many times were wonderful to hear. Loved this.

Last one I will purchase an audio version of.

After reading the 1st in this series narrated by the same person I swore I would never buy another. Decided to give her a 2nd chance and will be reading vs listening. This narrator is so monotone, nasally and lacks horribly. I was so annoyed I gave up and bought the Kindle reader version. Much better experience and story.

Wonderful epic story spoilt by flat narration

I love Sue Harrison's books, and this is book 2 of my favourite trilogy. The story, set in 7th Century Aleutian islands, follows Kiin and her hard life, beaten by her father, abused and deprived, yet loved by Samiq. He wishes she could be his wife, but her life was saved at birth from infanticide by being promised as wife to Samiq's brother Amgigh. There are many things about their early lives the brothers do not realise, their destinies sealed at an early age. I have these books, plus others of Sue Harrison's in paperback form, as they are favourites, and was hoping to deepen my enjoyment by listening to them being read aloud. However, Holly Fielding, the narrator, is completely dismal. Her flat monotonous voice brings nothing to the story, ignores cues such as "he whispered", lacks emotion or any empathy for the characters. She doesn't manage to sound either kind or cruel when called to do so by the different characters. Her only concession to accuracy is she does managed to stutter a little when reading Kiin's words, as Kiin has a very bad stammer in the story. She occasionally varies her voice tone, but only within the monotone which is her norm. 😴 She has an annoying habit of pausing or hesitating in the middle of a sentence, so that it doesn't flow properly but sounds disjointed. "Bubbles of milk from his. Nursing appeared at his mouth". "He helped Kiin make a shelter of hides. Driftwood and mats".... 🤨 Poor Ms Fielding also appears to have a blocked nose, which makes her flat narration even less pleasant to listen to. 👃🙄😞 Her mispronunciations of Aleut words, and even common words used in English such as cache (as "cashay") are also a bit irritating - there's a pronunciation glossary in the front of the paperbacks. In fact, by halfway through the book, listening to her say "food cashayed for winter" I actually wanted to scream "CACHE!!!" (cash) "It's CACHE!!! " at her every time she called it a "cashay". All in all, sadly I will be forced to avoid any book narrated by Holly Fielding in the future.
