The narrator, Robin Weigert, did a wonderful job developing her characters, with individual voices for each one. Not only did she carefully choose her voices, she was consistent, never faltered, and the children voices aged appropriately. Not only is the narrator excellent, the story was well-written, and the topic was very interesting.
The main character carried the story magnificently.
She inhabits her characters faultlessly. She is so versatile... she believeable portrayed young children, black men, crusty stagecoach drivers, an Italian woman, and a cockney bandit. Each was fantastic.
This collaboration of author, narrator, and director created a believable, engaging audiobook. I listen to alot of them, and this one is one of the few which I really couldn't wait to get back into, whenever I had to stop listening.
I particularly enjoyed the first time Mel saw Kenneth's ghost.
I loved all of the times Graham showed up and helped Mel.
Mel is a thoroughly relatable character, and XE Sand's portrayal of her is spot-on. She channels Mel in every aspect of her delivery, and flawlessly conveys all of Mel's emotions, down to wry humorous moments. XE does an admirable job on the elderly ladies, and the younger men, but I found at times I had difficulty hearing all of the older men's parts, and also Matt's, because the volume dropped off. Her pacing was wonderful, and the pauses were well-placed. This narrator inhabits each of her characters and has a solid grasp on how to differentiate between each of them. I would absolutely look for more from this narrator/author combination.
