I can't hear this audio book. It is horrible

Would you try another book from Eva Ibbotson and/or Kate Lock?

I read all books by Eva Ibbotson, but would never ever buy another book narrated by Kate Lock

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Who want to hear someone narrate a book with a fake German accent? is this supposed to be funny?
On top, the main figure sounds like she has the IQ of a potato chip.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Morning Gift?

non. Unabridged is mandatory.

Any additional comments?

I am very sorry I will never be able to listen to this wonderful book narrated.

I didn't like the narrator. Her accents were hard to understand and some of her voices were down right irritating. I felt the end of the story was too quick trying to put all the strings together into one chapter. It really left me cold. I will never listen to this book again.
