All the voices seem strident and overbearing. Sometimes it's like iistening to Foghorn Leghorn argue with himself. I think DIck Hill could tone it down a bit, but the story itself plows SO much of the same ground over and over, and he has to read what's written.
How many times does a plot development have to be repeated to each character almost verbatim? I had to take breaks to rest before listening to more.
Strident, loud, and combative.
I wouldn't cut a character, but I might try to give each character's personality more nuance. Many of the conversations sound like old cops telling war stories after one too many drinks....war stories they've repeated a thousand times...and being a bit too coarse in the presence of other characters who should be treated with more respect...like Abuela.
I think I'm done with this series.
The story drags at times, but the narrator absolutely bogs it down, even when the story is going smoothly. There are two many characters for this man's skills.
A better actor as narrator.
I can't finish this thing. I want my money back. Yute? What's a yute? orrrrr.....Yonda lies duh castle uh my fahda. Geez.
