Southern Lights is just over nine hours of listening, read by Nick Podehl.
Danielle Steel is one of the most prolific writers in America today. As a reader, you either love her or hate her, there really is no in-between, and she has legions of fans. If you are ever in the mood for sweet romance, meaning a teenaged girl can read the book, pick up a Danielle Steel novel. It’s easy to become absorbed, the stories are not gray-matter growth material; they aren’t intended to be. Danielle Steel is a die-hard romantic, and directs her talents to that end, pretty much exclusively.
Most stories involve a strong female lead, as does Southern Lights. There are ome unique, and sometimes quirky, characters and the trials and tribulations of each traverse the pages. A typical, Danielle Steelesque, satisfying conclusion.
Southern Lights is a nice picture of the modern day south and the cultural morays of the southern people. Interesting.
I’m pretty simple when it comes to critique of a narrator. If I don’t have to re-wind to determine who-is-talking-to-who, I’m good. Ergo, Nick Podehl does a nice reading, a decent production.
Did I say ‘boy gets girl’? It is a Danielle Steel, after all! Enjoy.
