This was such a waste of $ but at one point I had to decide what my time was worth. Couldn't get thru it soooo sucks. Would not post unless I give it at least one star really no stars.
I didn't read the print version
Pappy Jack. I asociated with the written character. Not the narrator's terrible job with the dialog.
The next person that walks by your front door could possibly do a better job. He is the poorest reader I have ever heard on an audible book and I've been a member for 10 years. He sounds like he's reading to a 1st grade class.
I'm trying to get through the book (because of the compelling nature of a great story) despite the narrator.
I see there's another version by a different narrator... odd... or did Audible decide to give others an option.
This could truly be an excellent part 2 to a great adventure. But the narrator is the worst I have ever encountered in my 8 years with Audible. In part 2 (of part 2) he just stops trying to define characters with any definition so that's impossible to tell who's talking, and when he changes chapters there is not even a small break to tell let you know he has and then transitions using the same voice. Impossible to follow without spending half you time backing up and saying... did I miss something?
This is the second book recommended by Stephen King that couldn't "stink up the joint" more if it tried. When you find yourself yelling back at your radio "Come On! Come On! Come On! that is not a good thing. It is painfully slooooooooooooow and as the King of Switzerland said to Mozart "Too Many Notes" in this case far too many words, The one redeeming value is that it's a great sleep inducer... which doesn't work too well when your driving.... here I go ...fumigating my I Phone again
I have been an Audible customer for going on 8 years and I have never written a review before this. Perhaps it was because I just spent months listening to Steven King's Dark Tower series, which makes about anything pale in comparison, but this is the worst novel in my massive library collection. Disappointing, boring, uninteresting and insipid are the first descriptions that come to mind. With a great reader and a compelling scenario this book turns out to be about a primer on adultery, with participants that no one could care for. Good Lord! Is that the best the author could do. I've got to fumigate my iPod.
