This is by far one of the worst books I have listened to in a long time. I admit I didn't listen to the whole book. I did however make it thru almost three hours before I just couldn't do it anymore. I dislike paying $15.00 for something I can't listen to without being very frustrated.
The story takes place in Scotland. There are no Scottish accents in the entire book. I kept thinking they had accidentally used the draft version of the audio instead of the final professional version. The story itself although well intentioned, is trite and telegraphed from the beginning. The story did have a good hook in the beginning, after that it all went downhill.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to a friend that wanted a light yet meaningful story.
What I liked best about this story was nothing was too heavy or unbelievable. Without hitting you over the head the listener understood that each of the main characters were learning about themselves and improving as individuals as they grew in their relationship.
The narration was excellent. I thought several times when listening to this book how much more enjoyable listening to really good performance was. In fact it made the story that much better.
