This Narrator Ruins The Story

I have been a member of for well over a year now and have downloaded several books over this time. I have developed a fondness for historical romances and for the most part, have thoroughly enjoyed the genre. However, to make an audible book work, it is essential to have an excellent narrator who can bring the story to life. The best narrators are really voice actors with an extensive repertoire of acting ability -- altering inflection, accents and subtle nuances which help to create in partnership with the listener, a theater of the mind. Early on I had the pleasure of discovering one of the best voice actors in this genre-- Rosalyn Landor. She is superior -- the timbre of her rich voice is reminiscent of fine cognac or warm honey. In addition, she has honed her craft to such an art form that few can come close to her vocal performance.

Unfortunately, Ms.Elizabeth Jasicki doesn't even come close. She plows through dragging every line with little emotion, such that I'm finding it difficult to even finish listening. Unfortunately I suppose I didn't listen closely enough to the sample or I would have skipped this one altogether. It's really terrible to listen to a story when the person sounds like they're reading it line by line as if by rote. There is no passion in her work at all.

Sorry to say my advice is to actually read the book -- you'll enjoy it more.
