I would recommend that friends read this book rather than try to live through this narration of it.
Filled with great, up-to-date information
The narrator detracted from the book in every possible way. At times she sounds like a computer-generated voice. She gets overly-perky at other times. The sentences are jerky, with pauses coming at odd times. It is difficult to follow the meaning of the sentences sometimes. I could only listen for brief intervals.
I was greatly looking forward to listening to this book, having heard the author on Fresh Air. I had read the first chapter of the book and I truly wish that I had ordered the book, rather than the audiobook. Let this be a lesson to me. From now on, I will listen to the sample before ordering. The narrator totally ruined this book for me. I've never written a review here before, but I feel so strongly about this poor choice of a narrator and I don't want anyone else to waste their money on it. Why couldn't they have let the author read her own book? She sounded great on Fresh Air.
