Story is good, but the narration is boring. It is just a rather bland reading of the book. All of the characters sound much the same.
The narration detracted in every way possible. While I thought the narrator's voice might have worked for the main character SHE USED THE EXACT SAME VOICE FOR EVERY CHARACTER. As a result it was very confusing trying to figure out who was talking.
No idea why the author chose to ruin the audio version of the book by reading it herself. Her voice did not change for different characters or to reflect any emotions of the characters. Had this been done by a qualified narrator I'd be purchasing the sequel and likely be looking forward to future books, but as the author is also the narrator of the second book I'll only be continuing with a print version...if the library has it.
I've listened to other books read by Scott Brick and they were fine--but every time he does a female voice in this book I want to slap him silly! He makes every female character high pitched, squeaky, whiny, and annoying. He should never be allowed to read for this series again, or for any book that has female characters.
