I enjoy the Daisy Dalrymple mysteries, but I needed to force myself to finish this performance. The narrator uses painfully high pitches for some of the female characters and artificially lowered pitches for male characters. The reason I gave as many as two stars to the performance is that Rayner paces her reading well and articulates clearly. However, I will avoid any book she narrates in the future.

What did you like best about To Davy Jones Below? What did you like least?
Storyline interesting but the narrator made listening a struggle!
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda! The plot was there and kept me intrigued, but only sufficiently to make me listen just to find out the answers. The interpretation of various characters voices and personalities kept grating on my nerves, making me wish I had bought or borrowed the actual book to read so I didn't have to listen to what the narrator thought the voices and personalities should be.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Ruined the book for me. I kept getting so irritated with her that I would have to put the book down and listen to a different one until I had calmed down enough to carry on.
Did To Davy Jones Below inspire you to do anything?
Yes . . . to keep more than one Audible book at a time downloaded on my phone so that I could switch to a more pleasantly narrated one when the narrator's voices got to be just too irritating.
Absolutely love the journey that the author is taking me on.
My mum is also a huge fan and loves her stories about Daisy and her family
Looking forward to many more of these
Finally, a Daisy Dalrymple book read in an English accent! Loved it! Totally recommend buying this.
