Moving story in a beautiful setting. Very real characters with real response to tragedy. I found the reader to be believable as the main character's voice but sometimes hard to hear as his voice volume trended down at the end of sentences.
The story was great. It was difficult to hear or understand the narrator while listening to the audio version of this book. At times his voice was dull, too quiet (even with the volume up) and he tended to mumble at times.
The only drawback was the way the narrator's voice dropped off at the end of sentences. A lovely speaking voice but frustrating to have to change the volume so often.
It was a very sad, depressing story. I definitely will not see the movie which was made based on this book. Did not like the ending at all. I could envision an alternative ending which the author might have used in order to redeem the actions of the characters.
His voice was too soft & I had difficulty hearing some of the words even though my IPad (or sometimes phone) was at full volume.
Beautiful sad story, but I think I would have gotten more out of had I read it instead. The narrator was so hard to understand, I missed quite a lot of the story because I couldn't understand what he was saying. Maybe it was his accent which is quite thick Australian, but I will not listen to this narrator again.
