The story has its moments and the reader is OK as a narrator but when he acts out a character he's terrible.
The ratings must be from friends. I was so looking forward this book and decided to listen to it instead of reading it. HUGE mistake. I can't rate the story because I couldn't listen to it. It is completely flat. A wasted opportunity for the right narrator. I've listened to at least a 100 books and this was the worst. Such a waste of money. Whoever made the decision to use this narrator should find a new line of work.
I'm a Ridley Pearson fan but this is the first one I have listened to instead of reading.
Impossible for me to get passed the reader to see if I would enjoy the story.
I have listened to 100 plus books and I generally like the readers but this one was really a let down.
I'm sorry I just don't think Will Wheaton is very good. He was ok in Ready Player One but this had a lot of characters and he just wasn't up to it.
The story wasn't great but a good reader could have brought some life to it.
His portrayal of the game creator is really bad - fortunately it s a very small part of the book. It's a little hard to tell whether it's Wheaton's fault or the producer of the audio book. There is even a description later in the book of the game creators personality and speech it didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the author's character.
I'm sorry but this was just bad.
One of the few books I just couldn't listen to.
I don't know who did the positive reviews but this is just
not worth your time or your dime
I think I like the story but the audible version of this book is lacking. It's not all the performers fault
the producer was really lazy.
Oswalt is actually a pretty good narrator but the material was not all that funny and the REM quotes totally disrupted the flow of the reading.
The first 10 minutes were okay, and I was really hoping it would pick at some point.
It just kept going down hill.
Man do I wish I had thought to check the reviews. I can't believe they switched narrator. It's really bad.
Every character sounds the same and they all sound like a grandmother. Wish I could get my money back
I listen to all the previous Spellmans and enjoyed them.
This is only the third book ever I just deleted without listening to.
