What made the experience of listening to Newport: A Novel the most enjoyable?
I did not expect a mystery and really enjoyed this book.
What did you like best about this story?
I really could picture the characters in my head
What does Johanna Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The story could have had promise had it not been for the odd, ridiculous supernatural "appearances" of Mrs. Chapman. The actress/reader of the audio book was terrible, too, making her voice into a dramatic whisper throughout the whole story. Who talks like that?! Nobody. People don't fade off into a melodramatic whisper when they're talking, so why do it in an audiobook?! I honestly had to LIMP through this book. The characters were great and it would have been a great book had the author found a different, BETTER way to bring redemption to Adrian, Catherine, and even Amy.
Would you be willing to try another book from Jill Morrow? Why or why not?
No. There were so many other directions the author could have taken this book in a more believable, real way and insead chose a pathetic, supernatural apparition to bring "truth" to light. If this is her best, I'm not interested.
How could the performance have been better?
DON'T WHISPER! I get it, it's a performance and you're an actress, but this book could have done without the melodrama.
