Couldn't finish listening to this horrible rendition. The narrator was all wrong for this book. Her accent was childish; she so grossly mispronounced words that it detracted from the story. If you're looking for a saccharine-sweet and completely implausible modern fairy-tale kind of story (which I sheepishly admit to wanting on occasion) it could have been alright--if you overlook the hero's rather abrupt about face and the heroine's unrealistic character and the flat, one dimensional Stepford children. But the narrator sounded like she'd be better off reading children's books. She frequently put accents on the wrong syllables, spoke with broad, nasal vowels, dropped "r"s (dearly sounded like daily; barber sounded like bobber) and wrongly added "r"s (drawering?? Speech therapists work on that with school children!) ) and slight lisp were too distracting to tolerate. She also really should work on consistent voice characterization. Sometimes in a conversation between the man and the woman, the narrator gave the man a higher pitched tone than the woman. Bizarre. Overall, not worth the credit. Thanks, Audible.com, for your return policy!
