A decent story but the narrator reads like a 4 year old. Would keep me from buying another title with him as narrator. Like with Scott Brick I miss alot of good books because I can't stand his narration. Wish there was a way to pick the person you wanted to narrate your book. Would probably sell a lot more books.
I have done little else for the last three days but listen to this great story.
I'm australian so dialect is wasted on me though I did assume the narrator was using a 'rural accent'. It takes me a while to get used to any american accent and perhaps this one took longer than others. Certainly I was reminded of someone getting over a speech impediment by enunciating every syllable slowly and clearly. I've never heard the word 'ambulance' pronounced the way it did in this book.
But 5 stars for a very entertaining read
This is what every thriller wants to be. It is in no way predictable and completely surprising at every turn. A dark anxious atmosphere, a hopeless quest, strange characters that seemed so real, a fantastic, unexpected hero that you will adore in spite of how disturbing he is, and once the ground is laid, virtually nonstop action make this one a real winner. The unbelievable plot ...... just feels completely real.
The narration isn't the best to listen to, but it did seem characteristic of the region. I sped up the playback on my ipod so it wasn't a problem for me. If the narrator bothers you, it is worth buying and reading.
I absolutely could not stop after about the mid point of this book, so be prepared to not want to stop once it gets really rolling. I listened while I cleaned my house so it kept me on task. This is a first for me! I think it would be a great travel book.
This is a very good book, but the narrator reads like a child who is just learning to read. It's hard to tell the difference between the different characters when the narrator reads a conversation between characters. I would recommend this book on Audible, but just be aware that the narrator isn't great.
I really enjoyed the story but, after the third chapter, I swear the reader was a different person. He clips each word and reads like a robot, pronounces each word in such an odd manner that it is actually distracting and annoying. Weird that he did not do that for the first three chapters. I actually went back to see if I had imagined it. Would have liked the book a lot better if he had continued to read as he had in the first three chapters.
Fast paced plot, interesting characters, very well written, terrific narrator, simply first-class entertainment. Well done!
Might be a good story - Narration is just awful!
I just can’t listen any more. The narrator is just so hard to listen to. There is no emotion; it is hard to tell one character from another. There is unusual emphasis on the words “The”,” a” and others that sound so unnatural.
This may be a book you want to read.
