    "I liked it, easy listen"
    Where does Ruby rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not at the top but in the middle somewhere


    What did you like best about this story?

    How she describes her home and the people, you get a good feel all the characters


    Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

    Not really sure


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Sure it was an easy listen


    Any additional comments?

    The ending was a bit weak for me. I would have had the twins swap places and have the wrong one being sent away. Then as the evil step mother figures it out she becomes paralyzed from her lashes down and can't tell anyone. Daddy has an affair with the mystery hooker. Some good characters came and went when a much more exciting store could have been build around them. Main character was good, too good. No one is that perfect and nothing happens that fast.

    "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.
