Actually Dr. Spock has more personality and humor than Kathy Mallory. It's been a long time since I've listened to a book with a main character as soulless and humorless as Mallory. She skulks around like a cat and doesn't work "with" anyone. It's a completely unrealistic character.
Part of the problem is how flatly Kate Reading read her dialogue but most of the problem is simply with the storyline. The character is just a giant bag of cliches. The added story line around the novels is kind of ridiculous and you truly have to suspend believe to accept that she grew up alone at about the ages of 7 - 10 on the streets of NYC because she's just so darned brilliant. Ridiculous.
I listened to the end just to see how it ended but I didn't CARE how it ended.
The story is what drives the reader, however, without an Excellent Reader the story would fall away!!
The performance was executed with perfection, so that the Listener forgets the reader and become absorbed into the story!!
Every Book written by Carroll O'Conner has had an Excellent reader and thereby giving me a wonderful experience of enjoying her books!!
Thank U Audible.com!!!
