This book would certainly have been rated higher if not for the distracting "style" of the narrator. His mechanical reading was not enjoyable. The story was engaging enough to hold me despite this narrator.
The story and characters are interesting enough to keep me engaged but this narrator is driving me crazy. His cadence and mispronunciations make it seem he is reading this for the first time. Ugg!
The author provides a foreword which is fine but the main narrator is either the best available text to speech computer program or a flat, wooden reader. His presentation and especially his cadence are quite distracting.
I have enjoyed this author's past work, so I didn't check the reviews - big mistake. I found the characters not very likable, too depressing for me. As others have said, the story ended in an unsatisfying rush. I strongly suggest you look for another way to spend your credit/money.
