I think one of the things that really made this audiobook special was that the author narrated it herself. Being an semi-autobiographical story, hearing her emotions and speech pattern really made the story grab me.
Additionally I found it a very intriging and enjoyable story. Poignant, yet comical this is really a lovely story about a young woman trying to find and understand herself.
My biggest problem with this book was that it only available in abridged. Aside from that, this is one of their weaker books. I have read all of the "Pendergast" series, several others written by both, as well as 1 or 2 written by each individually. However this one just lacks something, which may have come form being abridged (I feel I need to read the book to make sure).
Rene Auberjonois on the other hand does a wonderful job narrating. I really enjoyed his accents and candences in telling the story.
I think I got confused ordering this, not realizing it was a series and this one was several into it. However I did find the narrator a little grating for the short I listened to it.
I find something soothing about the narrator of this audiobook. The experience was really wonderful. I am a bibliophile, but sometimes struggle to read the classics; having a reader like this makes the classics come alive for me.
I truly enjoyed this book. I adore her trilogies, and was hesitant to read a stand alone. However I was plesantly surpised. I enjoyed the characters, while the story was a trifle convaluted.
I got this book in a hurry not realizing it was in Audible kids. However I oftenenjoy young adult books that are well written and fun. That describes this well. The story is fun and cute, although predictable. I really enjoy this narrator as well.
