Depressing to listen to

Beings as Spencer is one of my all-time favorite authors, I was more than happy to plunk down my $$ to listen to this unabridged story. I downloaded it, installed it on my iPod and walked off into the sunset.

Wow. I found the story, as narrated by Rush to be so absolutely depressing I had to give up listening to it about halfway through the story because, while the story IS somewhat depressing (loss of a family member) I remain unconvinced that Lee Reston sounds something akin to Eeyore no matter what's going on in her life!

It's a much happier book (as the story progresses and they move beyond their loss and grief) and I finally gave up listening to the audio book and pulled out the good ol' hardback and gave them voices of their own.

terrible reader

Why is this elderly person doing the narration for this book? I cannot listen to it ... Lee Reston is in her 40's and but the reader is just too old to make it believable.
The book and story are fabulous.

And HEY - why can't we get the rest of Layverly Spencer UNABRIDGED?
