Beautiful story, not for audio
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this book in print to a friend but the audio doesn't quite work. I think it may be the narrator, to several passages of interviews. But the author had a beautiful way of expressing herself.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Tania Rodrigues?
Possibly. I think her voice was just too soothing for this book. The book move along beautifully, but the reader was so well modulated that I found myself zoning out.
Any additional comments?
Beautiful book, but it is more well suited to print. The narrator is good, but for a book like this, she needs a bit more expression.
