This is a well-written and well-told story. The overall novel was poorly narrated such that reading it would have been preferable.
The dog, who was the cohesive character, without having a voice to render.
Anyone else who knew how to pronounce properly the languages (French, Portuguese) used occasionally, other than English; any other voice actor would likely have done a better job in differentiating the characters from each other with use of a different voice.
I never listen to any book in one sitting.
I rarely write a review, but am moved to do so because of the poor performance of the narrator, whose agent ought to restrict him to books without foreign languages in them. Knowing a few of these languages caused the occasional cringe at his mispronunciation.
NEVER -- especially from the reader
EVERY VOICE WAS BADLY DONE DIALECT OR TONE; DISTRACTING, IRRITATING; I had the sense that he lost steam towards the end of this very long tale, lost track of the voice he was attempting by the end of its lines
I didn't care enough to pay that much attention.
I've been a listener from the inception of the company, especially love mysteries, but this was a fairy tale with the absolutely worst reader, among only a few bad ones in my listening career. I ought to have returned the book before the investment of time.
no, I'm done: Child's formulaic and Hill is a mannered reader who I find annoying.
probably not - I've outgrown them. I always figure out what's going to happen, Reacher is always the same.
He puts his own spin on the words that makes me wonder if those inflections are in the text, doesn't modulate his voices and his female ones are awful, not consistent voices either, but consistently awful.
A bit of anger but a huge helping of disappointment.
Why didn't I return it? I'm so grateful that Amazon has enabled doing so; in the past I bought scores of books that I never listened to.
a little bit of hashed prose, but fun
a hodge podge, very annoying
