Probably not. I love the story, but I did not love Ms. Darling's voice for Menolly. MUCH too old sounding and I hated her voice speaking Brekke's cry/song.
There were many memorable moments in Dragonsinger, but the one that touched me was Menolly's breakdown after the fight at the Gather.
I really think Ms. Darling did a good job of differentiating the different voices, but she was all wrong for Menolly.
I'm just beginning my foray into audible books, so I'm not sure I would listen to a book more than once. That said, I frequently re-read books and had actually read this book when it first came out, so I might re-listen!
I have to say Eve was my favorite, but Mavis definitely captured my attention with her outlandishness and her support for Eve.
I thought the reader did a masterful job of reading this - giving just enough difference between the voices of the characters so I wasn't confused as to who was actually speaking in the conversations.
