Typically Goodkind; the annoying lack of contractions makes the text sound unnatural when read aloud, even more so in the context of a modern thriller. The choice of narrator who reads monotonically would better be for non-fiction. I find falling to sleep during an exciting scene to be disconcerting.
That said; a must 'read' for Goodkind fans. Once past the right-wing rants we have come to expect we find an engaging and enjoyable tale. While not a tale of Richard and Kyla, their fans will not be disappointed.
In short, find a narrator more suitable to the tale, seek permission from the author to alter the text to include contractions in order to do justice to this epic, I hope, series beginning tale.
