    Story
    "Amateur production, gave up listening to it."
    Would you try another book written by Elizabeth Norton or narrated by Debra Burton?

    I would try another book written by Elizabeth Norton but I would not listen to another book narrated by Debra Burton.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Elizabeth Norton? Why or why not?

    Yes. It was not the content that was irritating, just the production of the audiobook and narration.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Debra fudged and tripped over her words (these mistakes were left in!). She sounded like she was talking into a cassette tape machine in the bathroom (I could have done that for free). Her voice inflections and word emphasis was out of sync with the content of the story therefore it was unpleasing and difficult to listen to and absorb anything she was saying.


    Was Margaret Beaufort worth the listening time?

    The subject matter is very interesting and Elizabeth Norton's story may have been worth listening to, but the production irritated me so much I could not get to the end. I will have to read her book instead of listen to it.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a shame the story was let down by such an amateur production and narration.
