What would have made Balancing Act better?
A different narrator
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
What didn’t you like about Julia Franklin’s performance?
She read as if reading a children's book to small child or slightly confused elderly person. Her reading is stunted and her tones rises at the end of each sentence.
Any additional comments?
I found it difficult to concentrate on the story because of how annoying the narration was. Almost patronising.
I usually love Joanna Trollope's family sagas but after listening to this one I'm not sure that I'll bother in future. This was held together by Julia Franklin's narration which is always listenable. However, the storyline was pretty flimsy and I found the characters selfish and unsympathetic.

How did the narrator detract from the book?
She did well with the voice of the female characters but her depiction of the male characters was irritating.
