What would have made The Lighthearted Quest better?
A different reader. Elizabeth Jasicki has clearly taken on board the fact that the lead character, Julia, speaks a little slowly. The trouble is that she reads everything at half speed as a result (unless this whole recording is played at half speed) and it drove me so mad that I didn't finish the book, something I have never done before.
Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Jasicki’s performances?
Under no circumstances.
Any additional comments?
I think I've made my views clear. This is a great book, with a narrator who probably reads very well normally but has just not got it right this time. Avoid.
