I first read this book about 8 years ago when I received the series as a gift from my mother. Terri Blackstock is an excellent writer and, being from ..Show More »a small town in Louisiana myself, does a great job capturing the dynamics and traditions of living in that area of the country. The problem with the audiobook rests solely on the back of the terrible narrator. I don't know where the producers found this guy, but he has obviously done no research whatsoever. He mispronounces a lot of the names and his "Cajun" accent is absolutely atrocious. I work in theatre and when actors do a play or movie that involves speaking in a particular dialect, it takes days of research and rehearsal to make sure they are representing it correctly.

He made listening to a great story cringe-worthy. It's a shame that producers don't require more effort and knowledge from their narrators.
