    "narrator sounds like a robot"
    Would you try another book from Nancy Atherton and/or Teri Clark Linden?

    Yes to Atherton, no to Linden


    What didn’t you like about Teri Clark Linden’s performance?

    Her pace and stiff pronunciation distract from the story. It's like listening to a robot.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story is entertaining, the narrator ruined it.

    "Not this narrator"

    I enjoy the Aunt Dimity books, but the first two I purchased from Audible.com were narrated by Christina Moore, who was excellent. This narrator, Teri Clark Linden, is highly irritating. She speaks exceedingly slowly, and often stops mid-phrase during narration for no reason that I can figure out. The only way I managed to finish listening to this book was to set the narrator speed to 1.5. I won't be buying anything else from this narrator.

    "Cannily good writing, warm-hearted, funny and fun."
    Any additional comments?

    I love Nancy Atherton's books. Her writing is so transparently simple yet so well constructed (in the untraceable way only a good writer does) that the simplicity is sort of a disguise for actually very fine, clever writing and wit. I love the playfulness of the doings and plot moves. I love that some INTELLIGENT writers still write stories of playfulness and as if innocence is still an element in the human psyche instead of depending on the lure of horror, evil and socio-pathology to grab interest and sell books. What a relief. I love that she brings "magic" into her plots by means of a sometimes talking stuffed animal - - so ridiculous, outrageous that it's FUNNY . . . with vapors that it's maybe kinda' sorta' true considering the range and strange ways of intuition - - and of course, the redoubtable spirit of Aunt Dimity. Atherton has a delightful imagination. Grown-ups need magic and imagination too! And within the play of her stories are love AND some deeper wisdoms and insights delivered no less truly for being rendered with a light hand.

    "Horrible performance"

    I can't understand why this was allowed to happen. Another reviewer said it was like a robot... Exactly my thought. It was like a computer. Miserable. Why so slow and over enunciated?
