I might give the author another try but not the narrator.
Really?! I'd like to know. But I doubt I'll suffer through the next book to find out.
I'm not entirely certain if it was wholly the narrator's fault that this was as grating as it was. It could have been the director or simply the writing. But I ended up hating the protagonist. Which is problematic as the entire book is first person from his point of view.
Almost any other narrator I have heard could have made this book at least bearable.
I was practically irate by the end of the book. If it had been any longer I would have bailed on it. But I have yet to bail on an audio book. I really, really wanted to like this book. The premise is intriguing but the POV character is such a milquetoast ninny that I kept wanting someone to shoot him and take over the narrative.
And I feel bad about that. But there it is.
This concept had such potential and completely failed on almost every level. On the plus side, it isn't that long and it's inexpensive.
