The reading style of the VO talent.
Well structured and paced. Like the epistolary structure.
Terrible read. Overacted all the parts. Very forced.
Copy is already restrained because of epistolary structure. The humor is in what isn't there, in visualizing someone sitting down and writing these notes (over detailed, full of personality) rather than classical omniscient narrative perspective.
By the reader "performing" the letters, it makes the novel seem campy in a children's melodrama way. This doesn't seem to be the intention of the author.
Narrated in the style of a Saturday morning cartoon aimed at 4 to 9 year-olds.
The book itself is great. Ms Semple knows what she is doing. It's light without being precious or juvenile.
