Good Story-Great Listen

This was a very uplifiting story. While some of the situations do stretch the reader's credulity if you wait some of the biggest stretches of logic are at least brought into the realm of possibility. It does take a certain suspension of disbelief, but it is worth it. On top of that the characters are ones that are likeable and you want to find out not only their ultimate ends but sit back and enjoy the journey along the way. The reader is gifted and adds not distracts from the story. A genuine good listen!

Why do narrators baby talk?

I really enjoyed this story. I even looked to see if this author had others available on tape. The hardest part of listening to this story was suffering through the baby talk/baby voice that the narrator used when reading the story. The story would be flowing along, and then it would be like finger nails on a blackboard when the children's lines would be read.
