Würden Sie dieses Buch einem Freund empfehlen? Warum oder warum nicht?
The second book of Ms McKay's „Herc's Mercs“ series grabbed my imagination because of the interesting paring of Alec and Jon. Of course, the love story between an movie/theatre actor and his bodyguard is not new, but Ms McKay has written it with a close touch of reality and less sensationalism. The slowly building relationship between those two is sweet and nice to follow.
Hat Ihnen Jacob Schaumburg an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?
Mr.Schaumburg, the narrator of the audio book, does a good job presenting Jon with a warm, open and pleasant voice and Alec with a more calm,reserved and concerned one. He also has a good range of different voices for eg Alec's colleague or the overly excited squealing fans.
Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?
It would have been a relaxing and entertaining listening but the recording quality of the production is sadly anything but high standard. First I thought something was wrong with my player until I realized the bleeps and repetition of words/sentences as well as some rather long silent gaps came from the recording itself. I wonder if this out-take version instead of the cut-and-polished one came into publishing by accident; there certainly had been no mentioning anywhere. Some of those out-takes might be funny but on the whole they stem the flow of the story and hinder following it, minimizing my listening evening considerably.
