Ok, I may have rated this one a tad low because I did find the story and characters entertaining. I did like the overall concept of this book and I wish I could have finished it.
But, I was so irritated by the reading that I had to quit listening and feel I have wasted a credit in this purchase.
When Jill Melancon uses her normal speaking voice it is pleasant and has a fine tone....But, when she is trying to express any emotion in the characters such as surprise, confusion, anger, etc...her voice becomes shrill and grating. Our main character, Aideen, is shy and insecure but the tone of the narrators voice to express this makes me wonder if our character has a mental handicap with the emotional level of a petulent 8 year old.
I will probably just buy the book because the story does have potential as a good read but as an audio with this performance its a complete dud for me.
