I was excited to see another in book in the Anna Pigeon series. I purchased the book last week and began listening to it. The narration of this new Nevada Barr Anna Pigeon book was so bad that I may not ever listen to it. The narrator, Cindy Williams, was reading in a monotone. I may have to resort to reading this one. I have listened to and enjoyed enjoyed all of previous books read by Barbara Rosenbladt very much. I don't think this is just needing to get use to a change.
This Spenser book narration was flat and lacking the sardonic humor expressed by the Spenser character. The story was good and I made it through the book. Of all of the narrators I have listened to over the past 12 years of Parker books, this was the absolute worst! Of the past narrators, Joe Mantegna was the absolute perfect Spenser. I am very disappointed to see that many of the new releases this summer were read by this Michael Prichard....bring back Mantegna!
