Narrator Should be Reading to Kindergarten Classes
I might try another book from Agatha Frost, but NEVER anything narrated by Kelley-Anne Smith.
Make sure anyone else was hired to read it.
She read too quickly. She was just reading the words; there was no evidence that she understood what she was saying. She could not do voices. This was just a very basic reading that any elementary librarian could have done. If I'm paying to have a book performed, the narrator needs to bring more than just pronouncing the words. Her voice was nice enough sounding in the sample, but it's very redundant over time.
This was a shame because the sample I read to myself on Amazon was very engaging. The narrator created a distance between the story and audience--the exact opposite of her job.
