Sadly, I can't answer because I had to stop listening. I think this book contains relevant observations about society today. However, I'm going to have to go purchase a hard copy. The reader approaches this content with drama and emotion that is completely inappropriate. This is non-fiction and should be read that way.
Any number of simple even-speaking narrators would have been fine. Perhaps even Ms. White could be fine if someone had given her the feedback to rein in (!) the syrupy emotional delivery.
I enjoyed the plot, good light entertainment. I simply couldn't believe the producers released this book with this reader's awful performance. It was easily the worst reading of any audiobook I've ever heard. It wasn't until the very end that I realized the reader was a friend and advisor to the author did I understand. No wonder - the reader couldn't be "fired." What a disappointing decision the author made - his novel, and listeners deserve better.
