The story moved along smoothly from beginning to end... more than I can say about the reader. Davis inserts random pauses that disrupt the flow of sentences and periodically starts whispering so softly I had to crank up the volume just to catch what he was saying.
Example: "She moved across the room, pausing by the door to listen."
That sentence would be read: She moved across the room pausing by the door to listen.
Davis reads it: "She moved across the roompausingby the door (whispers) to listen."
Some of the pauses last, seriously five seconds... in the middle of a sentence! I'm waiting for the next chapter to begin or to hear that I've reached the end of a part of the book but it's just a random pause thrown into the middle of a sentence... for no reason at all.
