Written version a better option
Oh my, where to start? Normally I find the narration adds much to the telling of a story, especially when a British accent is involved, but not so in this case. Barbara's War may have been a decent historical/fiction/romance/mystery, but I was so distracted by the amateurish performance, it was hard to concentrate on anything except the terrible reading. It reminds me of what I may have sounded like at school reading a story to my fourth graders after lunch, only worse. Vocal inflections remained maddeningly the same, whether discussing new puppies or a murder. The reader's pauses after every line or two was distracting and the loss of momentum during what should have been discussions or arguments slowed the story-telling to a mind-numbing crawl. There was no differentiation between characters' voices: Grandpa and Barbara were basically the same. Was this really the performance of a professional, Audible?!
