    Story
    "Narrator is really BAD!"
    Would you try another book from Cathy Holton and/or Linda Stephens?

    The story was good, I liked the characters but the narration was so bad it took away from the book.
    Narrator was horrible. She sounded like she was 100 years old and might not make it to the end of the book. As a southern girl myself, no one here in the south sounds like this....even if they were 100 years old.


    Would you recommend Beach Trip to your friends? Why or why not?

    NOT in this format, i am sure the book was a fine read.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It was beyond repair. I have not listen to this narrator before so I am not sure if she was trying to fake a southern accent or her voice was just that


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment

    "Couldn't finish it!"

    Couldn't even finish it. The narration was horrible. I'm sure I would have enjoyed the story, but couldn't get past the narrator's voice.

    "Recording detracts from book!"

    The space between chapters and sections was so long I thought the book turned off everytime! It is distracting.

    The narrator is tough to believe and you often hear mouth sounds.

    I liked the story but not the recording. Poor performance!
