Very enjoyable but.......
I really like Robert Goddard books and this one is no exception. Well crafted story that really engages the listener.
This is tempered though by the narrator’s ridiculous over enunciation of almost every word. He pronunciation of the principle character’s name Charlotte as though it’s two separate words Char and Lotte drives me insane every time I hear it.
I like the story to be read clearly, but this is almost painful to listen to. Unfortunately it’s not the experience I was hoping for as nothing seems delivered in a relaxed manner but instead extremely up tight.
Great book, but very over done narration.
