    "Narration was not great"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I love these books! The Aunt Dimity Series is an entertaining mystery that is just fun. It's not real high class literature, it's a great escape with compelling and relate able characters.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story is good, it's not my favorite but Nancy Atherton is wonderful story teller


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance was really dry and mechanical. She really tries to voice each character differently, which I appreciate, but her diction is so absurdly clear, drawn out and slow that is completely distracting from the story.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not movie material.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series of stories, but I will not be purchasing any others on audible because they are all narrated by the same person. While the narrators effort is good, her actual performance is grating and obnoxious. I wish she would focus more on telling the story than on clear diction and pronunciation.

    "Absolutely dreadful narration"
    What disappointed you about Aunt Dimity and the Next of Kin?

    I made it to chapter 2 and could no longer listen to the primary school standard of reading, My 6 year old grand daughter can read aloud more intelligently. Can't really comment on the bit of story I listened to but seems a bit bland.


    Has Aunt Dimity and the Next of Kin put you off other books in this genre?

    Definitely


    Would you be willing to try another one of Teri Clark Linden’s performances?

    No


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Aunt Dimity and the Next of Kin?

    N/A
