I dare say, the perfection and unchanging pronunciation throughout the book makes one wonder. Whatever the case, the book is incredibly difficult to listen to because of the unreal delivery. I don't dare call it a performance; especially in a time when narrators are sought after for their performance skills. Is Penguin too cheap to hire a decent narrator? It wouldn't be a surprise.
The story? Oh yeah, the story. I become so distracted by the delivery it's hard to get into the story. I guess it's okay. You might do better to read it with eyes if you are fortunate enough to have eyesight. If not, Penguin Books will continue to punish those who are unable to see with eyes, with poorly narrated books that would otherwise be a joy to listen to. Good luck!

What did you like best about Aunt Dimity Slays the Dragon? What did you like least?
The best thing about the story is the character development. The author does an excellent job of describing the new characters that are introduced in each book. This particular venue - a Renaissance festival - just did not appeal to me.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
There's nothing that I would change, it just did not appeal to me personally.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Most people struggle with Nancy Atherton's narration. I have grown accustomed to her enunciation of every word and it does not bother me. Otherwise, the narration is fine.
Did Aunt Dimity Slays the Dragon inspire you to do anything?
