In all fairness; I did not finish this 'read'. Not that the material was bad; in fact, I think it could have been very entertaining as well as informative. The narration of this material was the problem; in this case the author read the book. She might possibly be a fantastic lady; but I have never heard a more whiney, nasally, self righteous sounding voice in my life. The rythm of her speech is painful to listen to; and passages that even I could tell should have been amusing; just fell flat. Another issue I couldn't understand was the brief interjection of the other narrators during her reading. I guess I thought each narrator would read sections of the book where their voices might be best applied. Not so. For example, the author would introduce the diary of one of the characters and then one of the narrators would jump in for a very brief reading of one or two lines; and then the author would continue reading. I hate to suggest not listening to something on this website; but I think you will be better off just reading this particular book instead of trying to listen to it.
