Any additional comments?
While I am a fan of Elizabeth Ann West, the narrator sometimes loses my attention. I am affected by the tone in her voice. So I cannot give this an overall five stars. The story was great but not the narration.
Loved the story. But the narration was not very good. It was even distracting at times. I will not buy another book with this narrator.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I enjoyed the story but had to make myself listen as the narrator was terrible
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The twist in the plot was original but I was always waiting on something exciting to happen

never listen to anything narrated by Nina Price
Any additional comments?
Why have a none British narrator for a typically British story. It may not have been so bad if she had just read the story but her accents were awful. some of the ladies sounded like "Miss Piggy" and as a Scot myself, her accents for the Scottish servants were a disgrace. A reasonable story really spoilt because of this narrator.
