Would you be willing to try another one of Amy Rubinate’s performances?

No! I'm not sure if she is truly Southern or attempting a Southern accent and failing miserably. Her voice hangs on the end of sentence and almost sounds whiny and nasally. Very irritating - the main character is from New York and I just don't imagine her being very whiny. The men in the book sound whiny with her voice reading as well.

Was Flight worth the listening time?

Sadly, no. I listened to it because I purchased it and wanted to use it, but the whiny, nasally voice was so irritating, it made it very difficult.

Any additional comments?

I try not to say negative things about something that is a part of someones makeup, in this case, Amy Rubinate's voice, but she should not be reading audio books.
