If you read the first 8, does it really matter that this is really a bridge book? You will listen to it and then the next. Perhaps it was a little slow and lacking in action, but it really did move the story forward to the next book and connected a lot of dots. Kate and Michael were amazing per usual on the voice acting side. Whoever edited this, and whoever approved the edit should both go back to flipping burgers. It is almost comical how horribly this is edited. Constant repeat sections, and overlong pauses where there should be none. Crazy!
Like others, Paul Boehmer's cadence is really strange, and so noticeable that it really is distracting. This is not just Paul's fault, but also of whoever directed and produced this. That said, an interesting difference is when he is doing character voices, that whole stuttered cadence thing that happens in narration seems to disappear. So dialog is just fine I thought.
I really wanted to like this book, but half way through I just could not go on. It seemed very overwritten, but it is possible it was just the narrator that made it seem that way. There certainly seemed like something there calling to me, but sadly this audio version killed for me, what might be a good series.
