Would you consider the audio edition of Grimspace to be better than the print version?

No, the voice would make a great Ramona. She tries her best with emotions but she sounds like children or tween books would better suit her voice.


How could the performance have been better?

Different narrator.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Her voice is too grating and distracts from the story. I love the entire series and have all the books. But I get a migraine from trying to listen to the disparate voice. She doesn't sound tough, much less old enough to match Jax. Wish I listened to a sample before I bought the audio version.


Any additional comments?

Very disappointing because I really looked forward to the audio series.

A Good Story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator - she is skilled, but this book did not fit her voice. She was always in the same mode emotionally. She did not scale up for stress or down for the times Sirantha was breaking. It wasn't monotonous, just not a great acting performance.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Grimspace?

I could only ever make it halfway through. Aguirre's writing is excellent, but the narration just got me. I'll put this in the "to read" pile.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Suzanna Duff?

Allison McLemore


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Doubt it, the movie would lose out on the emotional roller coaster that Sirantha was on (as the narration did).


Any additional comments?

Excellent book. Excellent narrator - not a great acting performance (which I desire greatly in my audio books).
