This is the first time I stop listening to a book because it was not a pleasant experience. I agree with some of the reviewers that Carlotta's accent is not quite the problem, but her lack of passion when reading. It feels like she's reading the classifieds section on the newspaper!. I wish the whole book was read by John Lee, then maybe the story would be actually understandable. Sorry Carlotta, don't quit your day job.
Again the long intro narrated by Damiata just kills the story. I don't like over acting on the narration but Carlotta went the opposite direction and just ended my interest.
John Lee. John Lee and maybe John Lee. Just kidding. You guys have so many good female narrators that I didn't even think that you had a bad one. Well, you found her!! Sorry Carlotta.
I enjoyed the story, but I almost stopped listening to the book because the narration is sooooo terrible. There were times in the book that I couldn't tell what character was talking because they all sound the same. Other times it feels like William Shatner as Captain Kirk reading to you. If over acting is possible with narration...it's done here.
