Another fabulous read by Ann Rule. Thoroughly researched and expertly brought to life. But then this is par for the course for her books.
The narrator though, less than stellar performance. I nearly stopped listening only 15 minutes into the book. I found his gravelly voice and odd up and down inflections extremely distracting. I did get used to his voice and strange style of speech quickly though, thankfully so it wasn't a huge distraction throughout the entire book.
I do have to wonder why he felt the need to make all the female voices whiny throughout the entire story though. Does he not like women? Does he feel all they do is whine? Not impressed at all by his performance, but at least I was able to get used to his voice and not find it so much of a distraction that I was unable to finish the book. Still, his whiny impersonation of every female voice in the book left a bad impression and I'll likely avoid any other books he narrates.
Ugggghhh! Who approved this guy for the narration of this book? HE or SHE should get fired.
Sadly, the narration is sooooo bad that I don't think I'm going to make it much further than the 40-or-so minutes that I'm into this book already. Okay, I know I won't.
I'm a huge S. King fan. The Stand is by far my favorite book, having read it probably 6 times. I thought this may be comparable, but the narrator is simply SO BAD that I cannot get any further into the book. Minutes is all that I can stand of this guy. I've been an audible customer for about 4 years now, this is the first time I"ve come across a narrator that is just this bad.
I want a refund credit. The narrator is just that bad.
