As others have noted the narration of this book was too much and it ruined the story for me. After the first 10 minutes I realized it was a mistake and should have purchased a print or electronic copy (or borrowed it from the library). Thought I would take a shortcut using an Audible Book to listen to Lisa Scottoline's latest but it was ruined by the narration/direction. The whining, wailing and screaming as other reviewers noted was way over the top. Too bad. I stuck it out but the narration was still annoying throughout.
Used another narrator or director or provided different direction on how the book should have been read.
It is one thing for a narrator to emphasize the words, or to slightly change voices to reflect characters but the use of loud whining, crying, screeching, wailing and over-dramatizing the first part only annoyed me. Save that for the screen..
Not based on this performance.
If you can borrow this one from the library in audio.
