The narrator makes this book almost painful to listen to.

While the basic premise of the story was charming and intriguing, the execution, both in writing and especially in performance, was lackluster. The narrator read in one long stream without appropriate emotional voice inflections or any attempt to clarify which character was speaking a given line of dialogue. Overall, I'd pass on this one.

Poor performance

I disliked the narrator's performance. Her cadence made it difficult to understand changes in character. I wish I had listened to the sample first. I never would have wasted my credit.

The story plodded along, and the characters were all very predictable. Try something else by Melanie Dickerson.

I'll have to get the text version.

I usually enjoy Dickerson's takes, but this narrator...terrible. She makes it sound like an elocution exercise, not a narration. Her slow, prodding, emotionless voice makes the text sound stupid and inane. I'm disappointed.

But I'm still planning on getting the text version of the book! I just couldn't listen one minute longer!

Narration lacking

The narration was terrible. There was no differentiation between characters which left me constantly guess at which character was speaking.

Poach the narrator

Difficult to listen to. The narrator delivery is VERY MONOTONE. She has no flexion in her voice and doesn't give any indication when reading a different character. She sounds like a first grader just learning to read. Very disappointed :(

Worst narrator ever

The story is a good one but the narrator is monotone with run on sentences. No voice inflection to indicate character changes. I'm going to finish the book but will make sure never to buy a book from this narrator.
