As many of the other reviewers noted- the new narrator suddenly changes every pronunciation after 50 hours of the story (arguably certain names could have two readings but the word rouge is fairly standard) but couple that annoyance with the horrible voice and inflection of the narrator and what could be the start of a nice trilogy is ruined- I cannot finish this and surely would not buy any others in this series- the director and narrator could have maybe spent 5 minutes of research instead of this garbage.
I have to say, though he started well, Steven Brand sounded either over tired or like he was a little tipsy as the book progressed- awkward pauses as he found his place on the page, strange and disjointed - it really hurt an otherwise interesting book.
So many horrible characters with no depth, logical inconsistencies such as the lead's backstory timeline doesn't make any sense...and just bad writing. No editing just a rambling piece of junk...
Inconsistent voices and narrations, full of changing accents - not only varies from book to book but chapter to chapter so characters are poor and often sound the same and when there is dialogue it sounds like a monologue... lazy and shoddy.
