The story is fascinating to me, and the characters well drawn. I have a long commute, and find myself hurrying to get in the car to be on my way so I can continue to listen. The story is so good that it almost manages to overcome the bizarre narration. The narrator pronounces "the" as "thee", "a" as "ae", and doesn't elide the words in a sentence. He pronounces every word, every final consonant clearly and distinctly, even when it isn't natural to do so. It's sure not a Carolina accent, but it is so distracting I'm considering buying the paper edition so I don't have to hear it anymore.
