- Narrator-Story Connection: 10/10
Andrea is a very skilled narrator who sucked me right into the story from the moment I pressed play. Literally. That’s the result of a great narrator who are so enveloped in the story they pull you right in. Excellent.
- Voice Switch Over: 10/10
Andrea’s switching back and forth from the narrative voice to each character in the story was flawless. Even the switching back and forth between male and female voices. Elizabeth (Lizzy), Drew, Chelsea, Jeremy and all the minor characters were pretty entertaining.
- Pacing 10/10
This is a strong point to note. Andrea narrates with such youthful energy, charisma and passion it’s impossible not to enjoy the story. The pacing was great. A bit faster than my preference but that made me pay more attention than usual.
- Emphasis 9/10
Very skilled in emphasizing emotion, personality, critical parts of the story that you wouldn’t appreciate just by reading. Subtle nuances between each characters disposition were deepened because of it. You can’t ask for more from your narrator!
- Reader-Story Connection 10/10
I gave this a ten because I was completey sucked into the story right from the beginning. That’s how I KNOW the narrator has done their job well. I don’t see them, I see the story in all its glory. Excellent.
- Sound Quality: 10/10
Publisher: Dreamscape Publishing
- Overall Performance: 10/10
High five Andrea, you nailed it! I largely chose this series because of you. Rock on, sister.
