My performance complaints have nothing to do with Therese McLaughlin's reading; they have everything to do with the editing. This unabridged recording was compressed down to a shorter length by shortening the narrator's pauses. This made scene breaks hard to follow, particularly when the author picked up the pace in the final chapters. I had to rewind the last few scenes several times to fully understand the story, and by then the surprise ending was no longer a surprise. The story was still gruesome and morbidly entertaining, but I would have enjoyed it more had I read it rather than listened.
