What did you like best about Queen of the Air? What did you like least?
Sad and depressing but lovely story about a unique life.
Would you recommend Queen of the Air to your friends? Why or why not?
No. The story is ruined by the narrator who reads so slowly I had to put the app on 1.5 just get a slow/normal pace and this distorted her voice (and as bad as that was, it was an improvement). Terrible experience.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Bering?
Anyone able to speak normally would be better. It was as if she was speaking to a very dumb non English speaking (or half deaf) person. It's so bad, I wondered if there was something wrong with the soundtrack.
Do you think Queen of the Air needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No. I don't care about the book or the characters because the reader made me feel nothing but irritation.
What made the experience of listening to Queen of the Air the most enjoyable?
Both the story line and the obvious research that went into the book.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Liven up!! The delivery needs to be brisk and energetic for this story. Instead the narrator oozes emotion, her delivery is almost plaintive..
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No. It was just enjoyable....enjoyable enough to make me look forward to traffic jams.....
Any additional comments?
Overall this was a good listen, and the narrator was not so bad that she interfered with the story, once you get used to her drippy voice. I will, however, avoid books narrated by her in the future.
