The story was good enough. Unfortunately, the narration (and the quality of the recording) was horrible.
Layken and her family were from Texas. There was no attempt at an accent so when a character said "y'all" (which was quite often) it sounded totally ridiculous.
Maybe. It read like a lifetime movie.
The recording itself. After 2 hours I had to stop listening. It was full of static and echoed.
Not if it's recorded in a basement again.
Possibly. I think I would have enjoyed the book more of there was a different narrator.
I felt cheated.
It was entertaining enough. But the narration made it very difficult to get through. There was no emotion in his voice.
The story was entertaining. The narrator did a wonderful job and made the book even more enjoyable.
I couldn't get past the narrator. She was awful. I had to stop at the 2nd chapter.
Try paperback. Narration is painful to listen to.
So far one of my favorites. The narrators did an incredible job. I loved how the author really made you feel sorry for diary Amy and could then make you despise psycho bitch Amy.
Absolutely! But if I tell too much of why I enjoyed the plot so much, it will give away the story.
Julia does a wonderful job capturing Amy's "personalities".
I loved the narrator in the other books. She sounded spunky and funny. Even though it was the same narrator she sounded much different. Sookie didn't sound like Sookie. She sounded...bored. And the editing was awful! You could hear her breathing and swallowing throughout the entire book. Hopefully, this won't happen in future books.
I may have enjoyed the book if it was a different narrator. However, the narrator was awful and I dreaded listening to her and her whiney voice. I couldn't wait for the book to end so I could move on to something else.
The first half of the book was great. It kept me interested and wanting more. Then came the second half. It was almost like trying to put two books into one. I finished listening to it only because I already devoted so much time.
I agree with the review that said if there is an abridged version try that.
