The Mermaid Garden

Spoken-word CD - 2011
Rate this:
Ten-year-old Floriana is captivated by the beauty of the magnificent Tuscan villa that overlooks the sea just outside her small village. She likes to spy from the crumbling wall into the gardens and imagine that one day she'll escape her meager existence and live there surrounded by its other worldly splendor. Then one day Dante, the son of the villa's powerful industrialist owner, invites her inside and shows her the enchanting Mermaid Garden. From that moment, Floriana knows that the only destiny for her is there, in that garden, with Dante. But as they grow up and fall in love, their romance causes a crisis, jeopardizing the very thing they hold most dear.

This audiobook which was published by Dreamscape Media, LLC, was itself interesting. The publisher however chose to produce disks with only 4 or 5 tracks to cover 70 plus minutes of dialogue. Thus each track is 20 OR MORE minutes long. If you stop before the track ends, you have to re-listen until you reach the point at which you stopped.
I began to feel quite frustrated. I do not always have 20 min. of uninterrupted time. I need to stop frequently. I began to feel as though i was being held hostage to a disk i had been unable to get to the end of.
I did not finish the 2nd disk. I said many grumpy grumps. I returned the audiobook.
I will most likely stay far away from books published by Dreamscape Media,LLC.
(Dreamscape, is that name ironic???????????????)
