Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
No, the narrator really got on my nerves....
Would you recommend Groomed to your friends? Why or why not?
No see above...
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Lock?
Anyone but Kate Lock.
Do you think Groomed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Only if Kate lock didn’t read it.

I’m a big fan of Casey’s I usually read her books but decided to try it on audiobook this time, I’m only only chapter 5 and I’m really not sure if I can finish it! The narration is like it is being read for a children’s book, putting on voices and accents and emotion behind certain phrases, this is the first audio book Iv come across that does this, this is a serious book I don’t think it should be read like it’s for 6 year old children -sorry!
I laughed, cried, smiled and just loved this book. When I thought I had hated the main character, even though she's only 16, I found how much I truly felt for her, as her story progressed. At first she seems a manipulative brat, but the twists and turns just keep you guessing and you can't even believe what is really happening. GREAT STORY!!!!!
How could the performance have been better?
The narrator is terrible. The cadence is repetitive, the volume and tone of her voice go up and down with every sentence. I put it on 1.25x speed which helped a bit, but the problem of the volume of her voice means I find myself turning the volume up to hear the quiet bits, and down when she does the certain character voices.
This is just an annoying style of narration, please use someone like Denica Fairman. She has a similar accent but a much nicer narration style.
Any additional comments?
I really love Casey's fostering memoirs, and I have listened to "Groomed" several times. Definitely a keeper.
