Okay so the accent is missing....
Why Susan O'Malley chose to not do an English accent I don't know, but she captures the personality of Amelia, Emerson and Ramses perfectly. It's that practicality to the extreme of Amelia's that makes the stories entertaining and very funny. I may be the exception in preferring O'Malley's reading but I think she does a much better job of capturing the essence of the characters. As for the story itself, not my favorite, but nevertheless very enjoyable.

This is a really fun series and I was so excited to see that Audible was beginning to carry it. However, this version has a vastly inferior narrator that will detract from the pleasure of the book for anyone who has already listened to the best. The author must have sold the rights to Blackstone early in her career before she could afford to be choosy about who would narrate. It will be worth your while to seek out this other narrator.
