I would listen to certain poems -- mainly for the narrator.
I would have organized it differently.
Listening to Linda Roper, I am reminded of seeing a movie where the actors bring more to the characters and story than was in the original source material.
This book seems like an early effort of the author. At times, many of the poems have almost a nursery rhyme quality to them, and while clever, amusing, and witty in spots, I felt myself wanting a little more depth of feeling. Having said this, Linda Roper's narration is the real engine of the material -- bringing the poems to life through her wonderful vocal instrument -- adding flair, nuance, and just the right amount of emphasis when called for. I think Ms. Roper is a real find for Audible and would like to hear her tackle more substantive material where she could spread her wings even more.
