    narration.

    Maybe.


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

    No idea.


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

    I have read it before and enjoyed it. The narration irritated me so much that I could not even begin this one.

    Paksenarrion, a simple sheepfarmer's daughter, yearns for a life of adventure and glory, such as was known to heroes in songs and story. At age seventeen she runs away from home to join a mercenary company and begins her epic life.

    Would you try another book from Elizabeth Moon and/or Jennifer Van Dyck?

    Elizabeth Moon - maybe. Jennifer Van Dyck - not if I can help it. I wish Audible would allow you to block an author or narrator if you don't like them. Kind of like blocking a phone number only here a narrator.


    Has Oath of Gold turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


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

    Anyone. I am usually not picky.


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

    Cannot remember. I read it years ago, liked the series, and decided to buy all three books in the series and enjoy them again. After I discovered how much I don't like this narrator I didn't even attempt to listen to this book.

    What would have made Sheepfarmer’s Daughter better?

    Different narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jennifer Van Dyck’s performances?

    No. I have read this series in the past and thought I would like to listen to it. I just found the narration too irritating to listen to. Ever.
