good book- Terrible Narrator

What didn’t you like about Liat Shnapp’s performance?

I thought she was TERRIBLE. she needs to learn how to read. slow, monotone, no character voices.

Any additional comments?

well written and good. but the narrator KILLS it. why do you keep bringing Hebrew books with this narrator? bring more from Barak Sagi, he reads well in Hebrew. or better yet, find someone e;se. I am SURE Israeli listeners have other options.
