    What would have made Turned better?

    I TRIED to get through even a quarter of the way through this book, but the narrator spoke so slowly and in a teenage whine, that I just couldn't stand it. 2 minutes into the book I knew it was going to be an issue with the VERY slow cadence of the narrator. Unfortunately, the content never had a chance. The part I did listen to wasn't particularly interesting... I'm disappointed and sorry I wasted the money on the audiobook.

    I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and I would have to say this is the worst I've ever heard. :(


    How could the performance have been better?

    The speed and cadence of the reading was just unbearable.
