the editing was very distracting - sounded like they made the abridged version and inserted parts left out at a later date for the unabridged. I could even hear the narrator swallowing and clearing his throat.
I am an atheist but couldn't finish this very depressing book. I didn't want to spend my time listening to a lot of lists of various headlines of people doing bad things. I had hoped it would have been a little more informative, not boring. Her voice was irritating too. Anyone who is an atheist already knows all this stuff.
Hire a pro - I've only got into it a few hours and don't think I can listen to her voice anymore.
This was a great local book - especially if you live in North Dakota, or the upper midwest. I especially like that the author read the book - adds so much to the story. Sam has a great optimistic attitude and able to look on the bright side of life.
The only way I could get thru the melodramatic narration was to imagine this as a take-off from Saturday Night Live on a detective show - reminded me of that bad acting by William Shatner on his detective show - people (and I hope cops) just don't talk this way. But if you think of it as a spoof - it is quite funny.
