This is tough one to give a star rating to because if it was just based on the book, I'd give it a 4.5, but if just based on the narration, I'd give it a 1, so I've compromised and given it a 2. Everyone's comments in here were spot on- when the narrator is talking in her regular Australian accent, it's fine. But when she attempts to do the multitude of other accents which occur frequently throughout the book, she is just excrutiating. Most of her other characters sound drunk and slur their words, many sound similar, and none sound accurate. Also, when she tries to pronounce foreign words (even as the supposed native speaking character) she mangles them. The Hebrew pronunciations were so far off that it was hard to even recognize the words. It was so painful every time that she did I found myself wishing it would end.
Basically if I had it to do all over again, I'd buy the book and read it. Which is a real shame, because this is a great book, and with a better narrator it could have been a great audio book.
Excellent quick moving, writting. An intense read. I reccommend it highly!
