I'm disappointed that this wasn't awesome, because I liked this book a lot as a kid (though some things struck me differently listening as an adult) and I was really excited to see more of the lesser-known LM Montgomery works getting audiobooks.
I thought the narrators voice would grow on me, but it didn't really. She attempts different voices but is just very bland, to me, and did not do a good job with Jane's fathers voice.
Throughout the recording, too, are multiple duplications of lines (as if the narrator took a break and then reread the last line and went forward, but the editing left both lines in). Not a huge deal, but this is the first audiobook from audible that I've heard this on. It just seems unpolished.
Overall, nothing awful but could've been much better. Recommended for fans, but for someone new to LM Montgomery I would choose something else.

Not Worth an Audible Credit
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
It was not LMM's best work by any means (by that I mean, not on par with the Anne books or Blue Castle), but perhaps I would have liked it better with a different narrator.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
She did not carry the nuance of the story. She was easy enough to listen to, but she did not lend any depth to the characters or credence to the plot line. Also, the performance itself was awful. There were many, many times when phrases were repeated. Once, the narrator mispronounced a word. It was corrected, but we heard both the incorrect pronunciation and then the correct. Bad, bad job on the part of the director and editor!
Any additional comments?
Buy the book and read it. :)
