The hero's voice needs to be redone
The historical setting and glimpse into how their lives might have been. The narrator's voice characterization of the hero, Robert.
The mystery and development of the characters caught in circumstances where they all want to please each other, even as conflicted as it may seem.
Range, clarity, articulate.
Yes and no. If you enjoy the story, it's most definitely worth the time. Any shortcomings are overcome by the positive aspects of the performance.
The one voice that needed to be exceptional was that of the hero, Robert. He is a young, strong man in his prime. I imagine his voice deep, vibrant, and baritone. Unfortunately his voice was the one the narrator ruined. He sounded like an ancient, southern, septuagenarian. I imagined him wearing seersucker and suspenders. She made him sound scratchy, as in coughing and drew out his words in a blah, blah way. When he whispered, it should have been a hushed, murmur with a hint of southern, sultry charm. He definitely needs a redo to make the narrated version true to the story.
