I liked the story, and it's a good thing since it was the only reason I kept going to finish the book. I honestly considered returning this audiobook after finishing the first chapter because the narration was just THAT BAD. Then I considered buying the kindle version and just finishing it that way, but since I bought this for a car ride, I trudged along through the audiobook.
I had read reviews before I bought this, and I saw some people had said that the narration was poor, but I thought, they're just being picky... I was wrong. When the narrator pronounced the name Wickham as Wick-ham (from Austen's P&P) for the third time, I literally wanted to throw my ipod. I also had trouble distinguising between her voices for different characters on many different occasions, making the book and dialogue confusing. And in the end, all I could think was that people just don't talk that this, even if they're perennially happy people!! I would read this author again in the future because I really liked the story and characters, but I will avoid this narrator at all costs.
