Loved the book, but the narration was poor
I read this book series when I was a teenager (back then the title was Girls Forever Brave and True), so I was excited to find it on Audible. The narrator drove me crazy with her mispronunciations though! She ruined my enjoyment of the story. ☹️

Buy it for the novel, NOT the narration!
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
First of all, this book is wonderful! One of my favorites. So much so that I have the paperback, the kindle edition, and the Audible edition. So why the 3 stars?
The narration is perfectly awful. Is the reader actually a native English speaker? There are so many mispronounced words that it detracts from the overall story. In some cases, it's just incorrect pronunciation, but other words have the accent on the wrong syllable For example...
Potomac is pronounced PaTAYmic.
Midshipman is pronounced MidshipMAN
Coup is pronounced coop (as in chicken coop)
The diction is slow - VERY SLOW - and forced, with bizarre pauses where they don't belong - like during prepositional phrases.
Such a disappointing performance for such a terrific novel.
What other book might you compare Girls No More to and why?
Virgins, also by the same author, is wonderful as well.
What didn’t you like about Dara Rosenberg’s performance?
It's forced, awful, and WAY too many mispronounced words. Seriously, a novel set in Washington DC and the narrator can't pronounce "Potomac" correctly?
Did Girls No More inspire you to do anything?
Be myself, even if it annoys people.
