I wish I had read this book in form rather than listening on Audible. The way the reader pronounces 'Appalachia' ruined it for me. It is clear the reader is not from the area she reads about...but this should have been caught by the author and editors. It is a sign of respect to pronounce a word as local tradition pronounces it. If you are from Southern Appalachia you will know what I mean. Pronunciation matters...ask Sharyn McCrumb who explains it well.

What made the experience of listening to Dimestore the most enjoyable?
...with a long A's four times consecutively I decided it was ignorance and not simple mispronunciation.Honestly Audible - this may be your single biggest production screw up ever. Do you have anybody editing ? Did Lee Smith hear this mistake before it was released ?
What did you like best about this story?
Lee Smith's writing.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Little respect for the material - see above.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, but I can't now.Probably will return it.
