I love Darcy O'Mara in all of "Her Royal Spyness" mysteries.
Katherine Kellgren does a superb job of narrating! One is always able to tell the difference between two characters who are having a conversation when Kellgren narrates. She is able to consistently give different accents and intonations to all the characters throughout the entire book. You are never left guessing as to who just said what to whom.
Sarah Kelling's character was my favorite. The narrator did a good job, however sometimes I was unsure as to which character was speaking in a dialogue of two or more characters because her voice didn't change as much as it should have to distinguish between characters.
This book gives you a glimpse into the hard, cold truth of being African American in the south in the 1960's and the consequences of stepping even one toe out-of-line. The narration of the different characters is wonderfully done by each woman and really brings the story to life. You can just picture Minny telling Ms. Hilly about the pie. I highly recommend this book!
This is one of my favorite books of all time! To listen to this story being read was even more enjoyable than reading it myself. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing Edmond Dantes to life and of reading with variations of accents. Excellent narration and highly recommended!
I read previous reviews before purchasing this title about the "difficult to listen to" narration, but thought "How bad can it be?" Well, it was really bad. Pauses don't seem to be in the right place and the narrator will rush through a sentence that doesn't seem to warrant rushing. At least once I heard the loud sound of what can only be described as paper being crumpled into a ball, but surely it could only have been pages turning. I think the version read by Barbara Caruso would be a much better choice as she is a professional narrator, but I only have her version of reading "Little Women" by which to judge her ability. Alas, Audible does not have that version at this time. Save your credits for a more worthy narration.
