    "Horrible performance; Great book"
    What disappointed you about The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle?

    This book has so much excitement and intrigue, but the speaker is so awful! I would never reccomend listening to this book, read it - yes. But this is a preteen teen book, why the monotone expressionless voice???? So disappointing to my students.


    What didn’t you like about Alexandra O’Karma’s performance?

    Monotone, boring, & horrendous!!!! Where's the excitement that Avi wrote for this book?


    Any additional comments?

    Have a NEW voice done for this amazing book.

    "Great Adventure with Girl Heroine"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle to be better than the print version?

    I used both print and audio in my classroom and the kids loved it.


    What three words best describe Alexandra O’Karma’s performance?

    eloquent


    Any additional comments?

    Great book for younger teens (12-15), with a female adventurer.

    Story
    "Newberry Honor Book for a reason..."

    I read this Newberry Honor book aloud to my kids when they were pre-teens, enjoyed its exciting clipper ship setting then and enjoyed it again now. Although I had to suspend my disbelief a few times as the plot becomes ever more complicated... I found I was glad to do it. To me the narration was pretty good considering the variety of voices involved in the book and I honestly didn't notice loud inhaling. Heroine does a 180 degree change in beliefs, behavior, capability and self esteem which depending on your view may be good or bad. It made for some good thought questions and processing with my kids. Would be a fun family listen for cross country trip.

    Classic YA novel. I read this in my pre-teen / teen years, and I still like it now in my 30s.

    "Reader inhales noisily"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I didn't finish the book.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    I will make sure I won't buy another book with this reader.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Yes. I have read this book in the past, so obviously I was interested enough to listen to the audio version.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The narrator Inhales loudly. constantly!
    I did not go beyond the first 5 minutes of the book because the reader just totally inhales very loud. I skipped ahead to chapter 7 to see if she changed her performance and she was still making the noise.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I am sorry I spent money on the book. I wont listen to it later either because of the narrators poor performance. I think I should get a refund!
