It's good but ...

What did you like best about Murder Among Neighbors? What did you like least?

This is an interesting story. I enjoyed it. But the person who read it was terrible. It was painful to listen to. She ruined an otherwise great book. I wish I had read this one and not listened to it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Suzan Lynn Lorraine?

Xe Sands anyone else!!!

Would be so much better with a different narrator

The story's entertaining enough; somewhat cliche and dated (it's set in the early 90s) but not a bad mystery story. This narrator though is terrible. She keeps mispronouncing words and her attempts at the various characters' spoken dialogue are soooo bad; there's not a bit of voice-acting talent here. The tone and inflection she uses are just way, way off from the mood/gender/intent of whatever text she's reading. I'm disappointed that the other books in this series are all read by the same person; if it was someone else I'd listen to more but I won't be downloading anything else with this narrator.
