This Woman should NEVER Read Trollope

Awful, just awful. This narrator's high, American voice rattling away at a gallop with bizarre intonation and stops has made this unlistenable to me.



I adore Trolllope and Timothy West has taken me through Parliament and the aristocracy with the Pallisers and Barchester with the Clergy. Ms Gibson could not take me to chapter three.



I wasted my money do not waste yours. I would have given no stars were it possible.

Not a patch on Timothy West

Having listened with great pleasure to the Palliser and Barchester novels, read by Timothy West, I looked forward to this. But the narrator is just terrible. The voices of the cast of characters are indistinguishable, one from the other, and all - including the author's comments - are read in without humour or change of rhythm. I would say it was monotonous, but Ms Gibson does put in strange rises and falls, intonations more suitable for questions occur in statements, and questions are asked flatly.



I do wonder if it is because she is an American. But I am one hour in, and cannot say that I will ever continue. Unless I purchase the book, or Audible releases it with a better reader, I will never find out what happens to the Bertrams and their friends.
