Even though I did not like the narration in the sample, I sort of forced myself to go ahead and purchase the book because of ALL of the 4/5 star reviews.
I am very interested in this story - but to me the narration is COMPLETELY FLAT.
1 1/2 hours in to listening and there has not been one variation in volume, tone, cadence, emotion in Mr. Prebbles reading. I can barely focus on the story due to the "Victorian Tea Conversation" style narration. I think I will need to read this in print in order to enjoy the story.

Get a narrator with a pulse.
I think it is a movie....
One of my tops. It makes me laugh and has REALLY helped me.
I was dumped yesterday morning and I did not know how I would get through holding up at work and so on. This authors books have helped me to get through break-ups with dignity and kindness to myself and others. You can't beat that!
I got dumped by my live-in partner of 2 years on a Monday morning (yesterday morning to be exact) totally out of the blue. Spent the day in shock and just packing as much as I could until I was exhausted. Then spent a night bawling and weeping in bed.
I do payroll at work so I HAD to come in to work. I can't describe how EXCRUCIATING it is to try to hold myself together or think straight.
I am very lucky to have the kind words of my friends who emailed me this morning.
These emails brought me to crying fits again. I'm working and going to the bathroom to cry about every 30 minutes. Even with the kind words my thank you's and "smile" were forced and faked.
In the first 5 minutes of this recording I laughed FOR REAL twice. It felt really good to be brought out of my devestating emotional tornado even for just those two laughs.
