Poor Narration

The story, whilst not great literature, was a cozy read which kept my interest. It was not helped at all by the narration which sounded-computer generated with really bad attempts at accents.

Poor narration

Would you consider the audio edition of Aunt Dimity's Death to be better than the print version?

No. Sounds robotic and monotone. The story might be OK but the narration is too irritating. Shame the series all use the same narrator. Might consider reading a copy of the book myself

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Teri Clark Linden?

An alternative narrator might improve the performance.

Great story, dreadful narration

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narration - have it done by someone who can do a believable English and Scottish accent, and who knows the difference between a rural English accent an an awful Irish accent.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters and the plot.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Teri Clark Linden?

Anyone less less stilted , with a better grasp of English (as opposed to American) pronunciation

Did Aunt Dimity's Death inspire you to do anything?

The story inspired me to buy the next one, despite it having the same awful narrator.

Great Cozy Read

Loved the book, will read all of them. Narration is really very bad, no feeling to it and very wooden. The whole series should be recorded again with a different narrator.

Lovely story completed ruined by the narration

Would you try another book written by Nancy Atherton or narrated by Teri Clark Linden?

I would read Nancy Atherton's books again, but not listen, as I find myself shouting at the narrator and that really ruins the effect!

What did you like best about this story?

I am only halfway through so far, but am intrigued by the storyline and refreshing characters.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Teri Clark Linden?

Anyone who could speak English properly, in either an American accent or British! All the letter As being pronounced as "ay" drove me potty, especially at the beginning of words, together with each syllable being enunciated as if it were a separate word! I can't believe anyone would normally speak that way!

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

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Only that the narrators are so important to a listener's enjoyment of a story, especially when some of us listen to hundreds of them. Writers, please choose more carefully for your stories and narrators, do your language research better - please!

H mm

lousy Scottish accent but if you can ignore that it is quite enjoyable. plot is a little contrived but a nice void filler, not too taxing on the brain.
