Absolutely not. The midwestern accent gets old quick and her accents are off. It's very clear she doesn't quite connect with the characters. For example: a scottish character that says "ye" its not some old-timey yee. It's just part of the accent. They don't always say the whole word. Oh, and clit-OR-is. The mispronunciation got me every time.
This is a book I've read previously. I like to listen to audio books as I drive, but don't want something I haven't read before, because I tend to miss stuff. As a read, this has always been one I particularly enjoyed, but the narration just makes it drag and make me wonder what is taking so long with this plot... A shame. If you like the series, go read it on your own. Definitely worth it.
Yes. I've read this book previously, but I honestly liked it more after listening to it. It's light and humorous and the antagonist isn't some big bad.
It's very clear that Ms. Sparks has very little control over how her books are narrated, but this narrator is just one of the best. I can understand the pseudo-monotone might bother some, but her dialogue is right on the money.
