Narrator not as good as 1st in series...

My daughter loved Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry in this series. Ms. Lynne Thigpen narrated it to perfection. Unfortunately, this narrator, Ms. Johnson, does not live up to Thigpen's performance. My daughter would not finish listening to this audiobook as she said the narrator's voice annoyed her and took away from the story. Now, I understand why some sellers on Amazon are asking for $200 or so (ouch!) for the CD set with Ms. Thigpen as the much better narrator. I wonder why Audible used this inferior narrator for all the other books in the series, except Roll of Thunder. How unfortunate!!! I would advise listeners to skip this audiobook and get the book instead, unless you can find a reasonably priced CD with Lynne Thigpen as narrator.
