What would have made The Solitary Envoy better?

Better writing and better narration.
I suspected this was a sappy piece of work by the narration, but thought the historic content would compensate for the poor skill of the narrator. As I listened further it degenerated into total religious rubbish, so much so that I stopped listening altogether. I chose the book in haste before a long road trip, so it was a great disappointment. Fortunately, I had Faulkner's "Light in August" saved on my device. That is a book that I could listen to over and over again!


What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing called "inspirational".


How could the performance have been better?

A narrator would make the heroine, Erica, sound like a the strongly independent character (as she was written) instead of a simpering, whiny mama's girl.


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

All of it.


Any additional comments?

A very regrettable choice.

Very Predictable

What would have made The Solitary Envoy better?

The presentation of the story was fine; however, I am not sure what the readability level of this book would be. I believe that it would be very appropriate for middle school students. The story was very predictable and "pollyannaish".


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

This entire book should be removed from Audible for adults and put in the children's section.
