I bought this book, looking forward to listening to it on a long plane ride. At first, I blamed the flight noise for my inability to clearly hear the book but then once home, I had the same difficulty. Ms. O'Brien's soft voice, while charming, is too low and deep to make this a pleasant listening experience. I switched to the Kindle version and am very happily reading now. The story itself is quite good.
I recently changed my lengthy commute to a much shorter one and I am now sorry. Listening to this tale was so absorbing that I found myself sitting in the parking lot, and outside my own house, because I did not want to stop listening. The performance brings all of the characters to life.
