Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I had read the book, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thought I would listen to it on Audible while I baked. Good heavens!! If this was my first introduction to these books, and went by the narrated version, I never would have read another. Truly awful, stilted, almost embarrassing . I have heard many amateur narrators do a MUCH better job. This person utterly fails to capture the vivacious character of Lori. Save your money, or credit!
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Teri Clark Linden?
Almost anyone... Someone with a relaxed narration style who uses expression and 'gets' the character they are representing, ESP. First person narration!

Great books but the narrator was monotone and choppy during the book. Took away from the story....
I thought this looked like a good yarn, light reading to listen to while I work. However, after a few minutes into the first chapter I abandoned this book. Dreadful narration, which was stilted and the regional accents truly awful. I just couldn't bear to listen for more than a few minutes. I only gave one star for the story because the narration prevented me from hearing it.Waste of a credit!

Is there anything you would change about this book?
What was one of the most memorable moments of Aunt Dimity Beats the Devil?
The laughter in the secret passage.
What didn’t you like about Teri Clark Linden’s performance?
Everything - She's awful.<br/><br/>The narration is extremely stilted when attempting anything other than (I'm assuming) her usual American accent. Since the book is set in England, there's a LOT of stilted and inaccurate attempts at English accents, and it gets PAINFUL to listen to when she attempts Scottish.
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
Such a shame that such lively and interesting stories are spoiled by the stilted narration.
