I got an e-mail from audible saying they had fixed it, but need to know which section got fixed, since I have already listened to it and just assumed that was how the story went.
Bought this because of all the great reviews and what a disappointment! I may not be an expert, but in my opinion, the writing leaves a lot to be desired and the reader doesn't help at all. I stuck with it through the 3rd book but cannot go any farther.
Looking more for more books by Annemarie Selinko. This was a fabulous book! Narration was wonderfully done as well.
I am trying to remember why I bought this one. I tried 4 hours of listening, thinking something should get me into it, but between the terrible writing and the narrator's sing song rendition I gave up. I have been getting 2-3 books per month for 7 years and this one definitely wins the prize for the worst.
I love getting anything British with my credits and this book has been different than any I have listened to. A word of warning...do not listen anywhere being quiet is required! I use these books in part to listen to when going to sleep, but that has not worked because it is impossible to stifle the laughs. In the past, I have never wanted to listen to a book a second time...just like not being able to watch a movie I have seen before...but this one will be repeated many times! I want to buy the book as well, to be able to highlight some of the absurdly hilarious remarks.
I almost didn't buy this because of all the negative reviews regarding the narrator. I'll admit it took a while to really get into the book, but I felt the narrator was absolutely perfect for this type of novel.
