People/Characters: Daisy Dalrymple
Why or why not? I am a fan of the Daisy Dalrymple series and always look forward to enjoying the books in audio format. The story doesn't disappoint, with Daisy and her beau's daughter, Belinda, pulled unwittingly into a family drama aboard the Flying Scotsman train to Edinburgh. The reader's performance actually detracts from the novel's flow, mostly due to her struggles futile with the range of British, Scottish, and Indian accents.
Careful enunciation serves in large part as a upper-class British accent. She utterly fails with the Scots accent, which carries a strong flavor of Irish. The distinction among the various characters' voices is minimal, as well, making it hard to follow some of the dialogue. No complaints about Carola Dunn, but I will be very disappointed if Ms. Chiaromonte performs the next of the Daisy Dalrymple novels Audible. Of those I've read, this is by far the best. Belinda makes an excellent addition and although I found the word puzzle they labour over to be child's play, the rest of the mystery was quite satisfying.
These are fun, entertaining, light murder mysteries but don't overlook them for great listening and many entertaining hours. Good reading!!! I have really enjoyed this series so far. Light, witty, good escapist fun. The heroine is smart, sassy, but not completely unbelievable. I don't always like how she manages to skirt the law in the end for her friends, but that's literary license and not too disturbing.
I also enjoy the growing relationship between her and the detective. However, the change in narrator is VERY noticeable, and not in a good way. However, even as a non-native speaker, it is still apparent she cannot distinguish various characters and voices. I should say I am writing this review after having listened to a few more books in the series with this narrator.
It doesn't get better. She has a pleasant enough voice, but the first narrator on this series was just so much better suited. However, the narration is not so bad that I will stop listening to the books as I find them very nice to make a long commute shorter. So, I give this an overall 4.
Would you listen to Murder on the Flying Scotsman again? Probably not. The narrator's accents were really too poor to go through the story again. How could the performance have been better? A different narrator for starters. Let's go back to the original reader. Her accents were authentic and helped the previous storylines move forward.
This performer couldn't hold a British accent to save her life. And being American I can say that!
