|4.5 “The Ultimate Sacrifice for Love” Stars for the story and 3.5 Stars for William Dufris narration.
This one started pretty slow for me with three interconnecting stories, including three love stories. If you hang in there though, you will be treated to one action packed, tear inducing of an end. I also enjoyed all three love stories, but my favorite was the tragic but emotional love triangle that takes place in the past during World War II. So glad I hung in there and persevered to listen to the debut that started this long running series.
William Dufris narration definitely had some overacting and non-genuine sounding female voices, thus I can imagine that Patrick Lawlor’s and Melanie Ewbank’s later produced narration is likely the way to go with this classic. Nonetheless I was able to finish the book, and some of the parts, particularly those of the older version of Charles who is dying and has an almost lack of air quality to his sound would likely be difficult for any narrator to reproduce.
