could not understand the narrator, Southern accent to heavy

AudiobooksNow review by Donna on 2008-05-21 19:13:47

I may have been better off reading this book the old-fashioned way - I found the narrator's inflection extremely annoying. Beyond that, it seemed as though Rubio was making a conscious effort to use as many action verbs as possible - between the accented character voices and the lower octaved but not much difefrent he said, he retorted, he bellowed, he guffawed ... it was extremely distracting. Should not have listened to this on my commute - nearly fell asleep ....

While others have complained about the narrator I thought she was perfect and not at all difficult to understand. I have an older relative with this very tragic affliction and he experienced similar things before people were forced to understand what was really going on and let him live his life. This is an excellent book and does ring true for me. I'd love to read more from this author.
