If the author had stuck to the story and dropped his increasingly interrupting asides about the victorian period relative to his perspective when he was about to retell the story from another angle. What I originally thought would be a creative read, became a tedious listen and toward the end, I found myself completely tuned out during his diatribes and needed to rewind when I finally tuned back in to discover that the story had finally continued.
No, only from this author.
I would have put the book down by halfway through as the author's interruptions became worse and worse as the book progressed, but the narrator was an engaging reader for me. I don't understand how he managed to read such a tedious book so well.
A good pair of scissors and a hard copy would redeem it for me.
I hate to give negative reviews and I can even enjoy an authors interference in a plot line, but this book was excessive.
The book itself is a fun work for youth.
Somebody who would not have howled nearly as much. It was grating on my nerves from the first, but it became intolerable. I switched to kindle versions for the next books in the series and I found that there was not nearly as much howling or whining written into the text itself and that it was the interpretation of the narrator.
Yes, there is still much left unfinished after the third installment.
