Disagreeable heroine

As much as I like and respect Lady Jane, I detest Veronica Speedwell. I cannot respect her as a “flawed heroine.” I could go on, but why?

Cringe-worthy

Stilted dialogue and amateur performance, I forced myself to finish this. Perhaps a different narrator could bring this to life.

Poor narration

This narrator doesn’t understand the importance of intonation. It was difficult to listen to. It was as if she had never read the story prior to reading it aloud. I finished it only for the story. I felt this the last time I heard her. I will avoid her in the future.

I can’t take the narration

I’m giving the story the benefit of the doubt. It seems to ramble often. However, this may be due to insufferable narration. Like the critic in the story says, she sounds like a constantly whining child. I kept putting this story aside whenever it became too unbearable. But mama didn’t raise a quitter.

Why did I finish this?!!!

Poor character development & poor plot could not be overcome even if the narration was well done. Sadly, this narrator mispronounces several words, has melodramatic, if not cartoonish voices. I wish I hadn't finished it.

A little long

Be sure to listen whilst you are able to give your full attention. It is worth the extra effort!

Worst Southern accent ever!

I realize Americans are bad imitators of British accents, but if you are one of the few U.K. actors who cannot do an American accent, then don't.

Music is distracting

The story isn't good enough to overcome the musical distractions. The play format doesn't work well as written. Couldn't finish listening.
