    "Great Story! Bad Narration!"
    If you could sum up Ruby in three words, what would they be?

    Girls innocence taken


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ruby?

    How each place was described. I felt like I was there looking at it with her.


    What didn’t you like about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance?

    Too old for the book. You can actually hear her taking breaths and swallowing and even can hear her move her saliva around in her mouth. She shouldn't be narrating books.


    If you could rename Ruby, what would you call it?

    I don't think I would. Ruby is perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series and have read the books over and over. I'm really not trying to be mean when describing the narrator, but it almost caused me to stop listening to this book that I love. I would like to see a better matched voice for the series. The voice was way to old for the teenage girl, Ruby.

    "Bad narrator"
    What disappointed you about Ruby?

    This book is about a 15 year old girl. The woman who tells the story sounds old enough to be my grandmother. It makes it impossible to enjoy when listening when it sounds like a wishful granny. Common sense is to pair the voice as best you can with the main character . Poorly done. I have read this book several times and now after listening too it verbally my sense of enjoyment for the story is gone.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Nothing


    What didn’t you like about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance?

    She's too old to read books for teenager girls.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ruby?

    None

    "the file is not the correct audiobook"
    Any additional comments?

    I opened this audiobook to listen to Ruby, by VC Andrews. I am very disappointed to say that the file I received was incorrect. It was titled Ruby, but was by someone else and the subject matter was not the same. I want a refund or the correct file on my account.
