Could not get past chapter 4..

What disappointed you about Plain Perfect?

I could not take it anymore, I stopped listening before I got to chapter 5. The story had great potential and to be honest it may actually be quite good. What I could not get over was that the 27 year old main character was portrayed as if she was a 14 year old. I was not able to determine if this was the narrator or the writing. The story has such great potential I may have to look into getting the book in print and see if I can wipe that image of a googly eyed goofy teenager from my mind.

Plain Perfect

Would you try another book from Beth Wiseman and/or Renee Ertl?


What did you like best about this story?

I like learning about different cultures than the one I am living.

How could the performance have been better?

Yes. Definitely. The reader used the wrong emphasis on many of the words in the sentences. There was a difficulty in following what she was saying sometimes.

Was Plain Perfect worth the listening time?


Any additional comments?

The reader could have used a lesson in reading with feeling and emphasis on the correct words in the sentence. The reader was easy to understand, but her voice inflections were not good, and she used practically the same monotone of voice throughout the book. It was kind of distracting sometimes.
