I really WANT to give a higher rating to this book, but I cannot in good faith. I LOVE this series of books, but will read the rest IN PRINT, because the narrator almost ruined the series for me forever. She sounded so much older than I pictured Goldy to be and had an awful voice, that of a heavy, hacking smoker. (I had always pictured Goldy to be a bubbly, vivacious, Bette Midler type of gal, but not with this reader! And, yes, the slurping, sucking sounds made throughout the reading sidetracked me and annoyed me to where I almost stopped listening. Terrible narrator. Fix that and I may listen to future ones...
As for the tale, I normally find them action packed...this one was a bit "slow" in action...
This book started off real slow, but got better after 1 - 2 hours... I am glad I hung in there, it was pretty good. A little too much detail in some spots, but overall a great "read".
It was SO boring. I suffered through 2 hours and finally trashed it. I wasted my Listener credit on this one. Too much flowery description - no plot that I could find!
This was a fun, light "read". I loved the narrator's/Andrea's wit and sarcasm towards her boss! Don't do the abridged, listen to the long version! Makes my past "bad" bosses look good!
I was skeptical about downloading this book, because I have never been a sci-fi fan. I am glad that I followed everyone's previous ratings because I THOROUGHLY enjoyed this audiobook. It took an hour or two to get used to the constant switches back and forth, but then I found myself supposing what switches the author might make next...! Highly recommend. If you want something other than run-of-the-mill, try this very original work!
