Great Story! Bad Narration!

If you could sum up Ruby in three words, what would they be?

Girls innocence taken

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ruby?

How each place was described. I felt like I was there looking at it with her.

What didn’t you like about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance?

Too old for the book. You can actually hear her taking breaths and swallowing and even can hear her move her saliva around in her mouth. She shouldn't be narrating books.

If you could rename Ruby, what would you call it?

I don't think I would. Ruby is perfect.

Any additional comments?

I love this series and have read the books over and over. I'm really not trying to be mean when describing the narrator, but it almost caused me to stop listening to this book that I love. I would like to see a better matched voice for the series. The voice was way to old for the teenage girl, Ruby.

Does story justice

What did you love best about Ruby?

all of it

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ruby?

spoilers-read it. My favorite VC Andrews book since I was 13 and I've read like 17 of her works.

What does Barbara Rosenblat bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The Cajun accent. Yes she is a bit older, but I'll trade that for her voice acting ability. I feel like I'm in the Louisiana Bayou.

If you could take any character from Ruby out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Grandmere-she's really interesting.

Any additional comments?

audible the rest of the series :(
