    What would have made Sheepfarmer’s Daughter better?

    A better narrator. I am a gold member and listen to at least 3 to 4 books a month. This is the first review I've written and felt I had to in order to warn other listeners.


    What could Elizabeth Moon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Get a narrator that slows down. Don't blink or you may miss an entire paragraph.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Van Dyck?

    Kate Reading or Davina Porter


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I don't know as I couldn't get past the first chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    I pay good money for the audio books I choose and so I always give the narrator a chance to get better as the book evolves. This is the FIRST time I couldn't do it. She was that bad and that's a shame because the story line seems to be interesting.
