Not Blake's best and killed off by the performance
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
With a decent performance this could have been a 4 star. I had read the book before and liked certain aspects very much.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The woman lacked some sense.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susy Harbulak?
Anyone. I hate to say such awful things about anyone trying to earn their living, but she was just awful. I could have overlooked, with effort, her too strident, too fast narration and her Southern accent that just did not seem right for these characters. But I can not tolerate someone who did not even prepare herself by discovering how to pronounce the words. "Burnoose" does not rhyme with "furnace", "sanguine" does not rhyme with "beguine" or "queen", and "lithe" [and this one set me off yelling as it was farther in the book and barely hanging on] DOES NOT RHYME WITH "PITH". Look it up or use howjsay.com.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment. I have been a fan of Blake's for a long time, but her narrators so far are not great.
