Some problematic readers…

(2 stars)

I usually don’t mind most of the narrators on LibriVox, and appreciate all the time volunteered. However many of the readers in this book need to be reevaluated. I eventually dropped the book because I couldn’t understand what was being said. It’s a pity because the story seemed sweet. Might be a good book to have a single (English-proficient) narrator take on. Thank you!
