I looked forward to reading another Peter Robinson book after Friend of the Devil. Couldn't even give it a chance because the reader was so AWFUL. Weird intonations, nasal, bizarre.
I have listened to perhaps 200 books over the past few years, and I've never had to stop and delete before. I tried and tried but didn't get past the first 45 minutes. Scott Brick is horrible. The same unbelievably annoying lilt to each sentence. Awful attempts at a French accent, and failure to let the story speak for itself. I spend time before selecting each book and was looking forward to a new author and an interesting story. Disappointing. Would like to have my credit restored, and will NEVER download another Scott Brick narration!
I have been listening to Audible for several years, 50 or so books a year. The Help was one of a handful that I could not bear to see end. I loved every minute, and even did the ironing so I could listen more. The three main characters are brave, human and endlessly interesting. The villain, Hilly, is a bit of a characature, but a side show. I cared about these women, their courageous secret and their insights into life. Don't miss this one.
