Narrator is the worst!

What made the experience of listening to Only Ever Yours the most enjoyable?

The story is good, the characters are interesting and quite well developed. I think it gives a good portrayal of teenage girls and their relationships.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It's a little shallow, so maybe some more exploration of the dystopian world they live in and how it came to be.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

I honestly cannot believe how bad the narrator was. She mispronounces things, trips up over her words constantly and is extremely irritating. I don't understand why they didn't re-record all her mistakes. She is also very shrill.

Great story. Terrible narrator.

Was definitely not the right person to narrate this. She reads too quickly at times and the speed makes it uncomfortable and make you feel kind of anxious (which I didn't like.) Try the sample to see if you can deal with it. If not, but the book instead.
