What did you like best about Murder as a Second Language? What did you like least?
I am a great fan of Joan Hess.I have reread and listened to all her books more than once. All her previous recorded books were a pleasure to listen to - it was with this book I realized the extent to which the skills of the narrator are crucial to that enjoyment.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Not sure I can finish it.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Since there is little variation in the narrator's pitch, it is difficult to distinguish characters. Only those with accents are clearly identifiable.Also, at times the narrator reads at such a fast rate it is difficult to follow the story. Much of the reading is in a monotone. The characters lacked their "voices" - and the humor in the author's writing was substantially diminished. I think I would rather read this book than listen to it. I don't think this narrator enjoyed the book. .
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I will not purchase any other books narrated by this person.
