    I mainly read mysteries, and sci-fi, sometimes with a dose of humor, and I love the BBC. I enjoy the hidden gems more than the best-sellers.

    Story
    "Narrator Should be Reading to Kindergarten Classes"
    Would you try another book from Agatha Frost and/or Kelly-Anne Smith?

    I might try another book from Agatha Frost, but NEVER anything narrated by Kelley-Anne Smith.


    What could Agatha Frost have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make sure anyone else was hired to read it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She read too quickly. She was just reading the words; there was no evidence that she understood what she was saying. She could not do voices. This was just a very basic reading that any elementary librarian could have done. If I'm paying to have a book performed, the narrator needs to bring more than just pronouncing the words. Her voice was nice enough sounding in the sample, but it's very redundant over time.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a shame because the sample I read to myself on Amazon was very engaging. The narrator created a distance between the story and audience--the exact opposite of her job.

    "Good Story but..."

    Narrator needs to work on her male voices. Her detective Barker sounded like a cross between Lurch and a dim witted gangster. It almost made me stop listening on several occasions. But cute cozy story.

    "Ok, but I've read better."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Narrator. I didn't care for his voice


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I don't know. I don't like to do reviews. I like to read interesting stories.


    What three words best describe Kelly-Anne Smith’s voice?

    I don't know


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No I would not.


    Any additional comments?

    "Awful narration"

    I think the story was ok but I was so distracted by the terrible narration I can't remember. The woman barely took a breath and used silly voices for the different characters, Barker being the most ridiculous. A ten year old would have done better at least they would have attempted some empathises. Took me three goes to get through it will never bother with this narrator again

    The book was enjoyable escapism, but I couldn't enjoy it because of the poor narration.
