Would you try another book written by Erica James or narrated by Genevieve Swallow?

I have now tried at least half a dozen times to listen to this but the narrators appallingly​ bad accents just ruins it if she thinks she can do a Norfolk accent please disabuse her of this it was just irritating and at times she forgets which a cent shes meant to be using. I think the story feels as though it would be great but Ill never know

What did you like best about this story?

The charscters

Would you be willing to try another one of Genevieve Swallow’s performances?

No

Was The Song of the Skylark worth the listening time?

No

Any additional comments?

I will make sure I never buy another audio book with this narrator
