Sweet story. Loved it. I don't really mind the variety of readers, but the whole every chapter this is a Libravox recording. Thank you for the free book however! And I would like to volunteer at some point.

I tried to listen, gave it 2 hours. In the 8 chapters and 2 hours it has 4 narrators, 3 out of which are awful and really bad recordings. Awful! I had to give up
