Yes to Atherton, no to Linden
Her pace and stiff pronunciation distract from the story. It's like listening to a robot.
The story is entertaining, the narrator ruined it.
I am a web services librarian and long time Audible listener (13 years).
I enjoy the Aunt Dimity books, but the first two I purchased from Audible.com were narrated by Christina Moore, who was excellent. This narrator, Teri Clark Linden, is highly irritating. She speaks exceedingly slowly, and often stops mid-phrase during narration for no reason that I can figure out. The only way I managed to finish listening to this book was to set the narrator speed to 1.5. I won't be buying anything else from this narrator.
I can't understand why this was allowed to happen. Another reviewer said it was like a robot... Exactly my thought. It was like a computer. Miserable. Why so slow and over enunciated?
