Imagine Wilfred Brimley trying to read the parts of young women. Not pleasant. It's hard to tell if the book was any good because the reader was so ill-suited for the material.
At first I thought this book was going to be a dry, boring story with lots of miscellaneous facts, but it turned out to be a great story! Don't give up on it too soon. You'll end up loving it. Plus the narrator has a very cozy voice and portrays the characters in various voices which makes it all the nicer to listen to.
Though the beginning was hard to get into, this book was a delightful love story with an amusing background setting. The reader of this book is very clear.
