A different narrator
No. Upsetting vocal performance distracts from following the story.
This narrator has an odd repetitive way of delivering her sentences. She delivers far too many sentences with exactly the same inflection, often ending sentences with an annoying rising note. This makes a lot of the story sound like it was written as a series of questions rather than a narrative. Her performance does not add anything to the story and if anything destroys the ability of the listener to move along with the tale seamlessly connecting one sentence to the next. Each sentence sounds as if it has been recorded in a vacuum independent of any other. It is extremely difficult to feel anything for the story or its characters with this level of distracted narration.
Extreme frustration. I cannot get past the quirks of narration to enjoy the story.
I may try to read the ebook. This narration just gets worse in following books of the series.
