For the most part, a fun read

A good book and a fun read,,,Certainly No Classic as Toby Tample is a spoiled , lonely boy who eventually falls for a women who's values are as screwed-up as his.. The fun part is after he plays 2 weeks in Las Vegas and finds out he slept with the WRONG Girl....All in all OK, with a very good narration.

Narrator sounds like Siri

The story is great but the narrator sounds like Siri or Alexa reading very very fast and robotic.

Performance

Hated the way the book was read. Voice sounded so old and tired.
Couldn’t even finish the book because the sound of her voice. Will never waste another credit if that person is reading the audible. Hated it!

Read too quickly - Pity: the book could be great.

If you could sum up A Stranger in the Mirror in three words, what would they be?

I love Sidney Sheldon's books. Spoiled as narrator reads too quickly.

What does Shannon Engemann bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Read too quickly. A pity as the story could be great and very enjoyable.

(Shannon Engemann read Master of the Game very well)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Read much too quickly.

enjoyable crisp audio recording of a revenge saga

I know some said the narration was too quick but I quite liked the speed of delivery. This was a bitter tale of Hollywood, twisted love and, whilst it avoided the typical Sheldon twist, almost everything happened for a reason. 3.5 rounded to 4 for a story that kept me involved.
