Narrator does not fit the book.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I was very disappointed that the narrator was not from Louisiana. To hear it read with the accent only a native of South or Southwest Louisiana could give to this story would have made it sound authentic. The person narrating it as very little expression... almost monotone.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
He is not a native from South or Southwest Louisiana. His northern accent and almost matter-of-fact details read with almost a monotone made it very dry reading, whereas a native of South or Southwest Louisiana would have given it a more interesting and believable. Whoever made the decision to use this narrator was badly informed.

This is not what I was hoping for. I could not stay with the book due to the authors pension for dates times places (by the old names), planting of crops and what grew where all of which really of no interest to me. I could not make myself finish the book.
