was excited to listen to this audio-book when I read what
it was supposed to be about, but I started getting confused
after the first chapter. Confessions has two narrators so
I found it hard to get into the story especially because it
didn’t stick with the main narrator. I still managed
to listen to the entire audio-book and I enjoyed the story,
but I just couldn’t remember what had previously happened
when I would start the book again. Whenever I got ready to
listen to more I had to go back one chapter and re-listen
just to keep up with the story.
Minato put a lot of detail and emotion into her story; there
were times I felt I could actually be the mother in the story,
going through the same experiences. I felt sympathy for her
more than anger or fear. I understood why she wanted to exact
revenge for her child, any mother would feel the same way.
Although it was supposed to be a thriller novel I wasn’t
on the edge of my seat like I thought I would be; instead
I felt bad for her and I wanted to help her instead of fearing
have preferred Elaina Erika Davis be the only narrator, especially
because the main character in the story is a woman. I didn’t
think it was necessary for Noah Galvin to be a narrator for
the story; I thought it threw the story off a little bit.
If it had to have two narrators then it should have been another
woman. Elaina Erika Davis is an actress for both TV and film;
some of the shows she's appeared in are All My Children,
Spin City, Law & Order, Book of Danny, and Contact.
Ms. Davis has also narrated other books including Memoirs
of a Geisha, In a Class by Itself, and When the Emperor
was Divine. Elaina Erika Davis is fluent in both English
and Japanese. Noah Galvin has narrated only a few books including
The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Forgive Me,
