The book, yes. This audio book, no.
This is the most flat narration I have ever heard. I love the book and have read it numerous times, but could not stand to listen to even the first chapter! So sad!
Phyllida Nash did a great job portraying the various voices of the characters. I really like the speech culture of the people of the island.
I have often wished that there were ratings for books. If there were, I would rate this one PG -13. It was not graphic, but did touch on some situations I would not share with a child or teen. I was a bit nervous when I read the first situation that more would follow that were graphic. Not so. About as much as I am willing to read though.
