Like the reviewer before me, I have had to force myself to finish this book. Not only is the main
character uninteresting, but the narrator brings no warmth to the story, whatsoever. A big disappointment.
This latest book by Hugh Howey is well-written, and extremely well-narrated. Karen Chilton's voice matches the landscape of heat and sand, I honestly could not imagine a better narration. As far as the story, words don't describe how well Hugh Howey makes the people and environment so real you feel you are there. I LOVED this book.
The narration..oh my gosh, I thought it was awful. I finished the book because I thought the premise of the book was interesting.
The relationship between Einstein, Travis and Nora.
The narrator sounded like he was reporting a news story. When he spoke as characters, in my opinion, his voice did not match the characters at all.
I am not sure how you could have a dog do the kinds of things Einstein did in the book.
If they could pull that off then possibly Denzel Washington as Lem, Jake Gylenhaal as Travis and Michelle Monoghan as Nora.
Wait!! What a disappointment! I had listened to the other Bride books
before this one and (my fault) bought this one just assuming it was the same narrator. Talk about night and day...this narrator sounds like she is about fourteen and all the characters come off sounding like they are pre-teens as
well. Good book, poor choice of narrator...
This the first audiobook I've listened to where I have barely been able to finish the book due to the narration. While the story itself was well written, and well-paced with good characterization, I found the narrator's breathy attempts to sound female annoying and distracting.
