The production of this audiobook was awful. The narrator was so much louder than some of the character voices that I had to adjust the volume. In some places the sound effects were so loud that I couldn't understand the dialog and some of the voices were so over done that, once again they were not understandable. A straight reading of the story would have been an improvement.
I did enjoy the story. It was not great literature but it was entertaining, the parts I could hear.
Since I listen to this primarily in the car or when I'm weaving, I don't feel that the time was wasted but there seemed to be much more set up and description. A little too much. I thought the "Grandmother" character was a little over done and the problem with the wall and conversations with the Guardians could have been shortened for more flow to the story. These plot points seemed to be used as padding.
I have already started listening to the next book, but if it is as slow as the third book, I don't know if I'll buy another.
The performance was good with real differences between the characters.
