I found this book unsatisfying . The stories was superficial simplistic & predictable . Also as an Australian I found the readers attempts at an Australian ascent truly horrible . It got to the point that I just could not keep listening . Why don't these readers listen to some real Australian ascents .Does Russell Crow or Nichole Kidman sound like this?? It was a cross between Michel Cain & Dick Van Dike in Mary Poppins ??? This reading was horrible & if I may say as an Australian insulting .
It was predictable & the attempt at an Australian ascent was horrible .
He was OK when reading in his own voice but listen to some real Australians before attempting the ascent again .
Please if there are Australian characters in future readings work at getting the ascent right . Imagine if you were listening to an Englishman doing a reading & every American character sounded like Gommer Pile ! That is how this reading came across to me.
The subject matter of this audio book may be very good. However I will never know. The reading is so awful. Really awful!! The reading is flat & mechanical. I could not get past the first chapter. Also the book downloaded in each individual chapter; not as a whole book. If I were the author I???d be very upset about the whole presentation. I have purchased many audio books from Audible & this one falls very well short of the usual quality I have grown to expect. Don???t waste your money on this one.
