Unfortunately very disappointing

What disappointed you about Banking on Death?

Unfortunately, the narration/production quality is simply very poor. I am a big Emma Lathen fan and was very happy to see the first Thatcher book available, but this appears to be some kind of home production that substantially detracts from the book. This is the first Audible book I've ever been unable to make it through solely due to the narration.

Reader ruined story.

Did not get many chapters in before giving up. So hard to focus on story due to poor reading, but want to find out what happens! Have added to hard copy book list.
