The narrator has a really monotone voice that is extremely nasally. The story itself holds my interest, but it sounds like the guy is reading the story with a clothespin over his nose. It almost makes it so I don't want to even listen.
Some people have written that you get used to the narrator eventually, but after several hours of listening he was just annoying me way too much. He uses the same inflection for every single sentence and ends each one with this obnoxious, breathy tone that fades out. I'm sure the story is good, but I cannot stand the narrator so I guess I'll never find out unless I get a hard copy from the library.
My advice when considering this book: only get it if you can stomach hearing diseased body parts being compared to food. Salami? Apparently looks like a diseased spleen. And an Ebola victim's diseased liver was compared to pudding. I'm usually OK, but it was a bit much for me.
Other than the food comparisons, this was a good book with an interesting and somewhat scary story.
