Great story, awful narration

2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-22-10

I love Barbara Kingsolver and thought she did a great job of narrating Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, but her narration here is excruciating. Her sing-song over-enunciation is painful. I bought the book and will read it rather than listen to it.

This was such a pleasure from start to finish. The story is terrific and the writing is beautiful and rare. I'm so glad I listened to it instead of reading it because Chelsey Rives is by far the best reader I've heard to date. The only disappointment was that it had to end.
