no. I would recommend reading this book, not listening. Susan Duerdon has too modern a speaking style with her "up speak" ending every phrase with a high note.
Bring back Wanda McCaddon. Susan Duerdon might be great narrating a modern novel where the characters speak in that irritating modern upspeak (the high rising terminal I just learned from Wiki). No one talked remotely like that until the last decade or so. Having a characters from 1939 speak with such a modern accent is as irritating as any other inaccurate and inappropriate accent. I could not get lost in the story which is why I love to listen to audio books.
I have only listened to these books by Deborah Morgan. But with the great reader the stories come to life as audible books. I think I will continue to listen to Morgans books over reading them as page turners.
I enjoyed this series by Deborah Morgan for both the Seattle local color and the insight into the world of antiques collectors.
I listened to this before I went to India a couple years ago. A great audio book with an excellent reader. Captures the feel of India much better than the movie does. I also listened to 'Holy Cow' as part of my going to India prep and recommend that too is you are in the mood for more about India.
