Again, the sound effects, the multiple narrators: these things completely distract and take away from the story.
Whatever happened to novels having a plot that ends with some sort of resolution? Lazy writing made it seem like the author had given up on her characters - and made me wish I'd given up trying to listen.
Some people will like the assistance of a female narrator to voice female characters; listening to the book on a road trip, my travel mates and I found it distracting, particularly because the volume levels of the narrators weren't well mixed. Similarly: sound effects in an audiobook? It didn't work for me - not at all. I lost track of the story more than once.
