Painful. Mean. An unpleasant story. I was uncomfortable and disappointed at the heartless and demeaning treatment of the heroine. This plot line should have been abandoned early on. It left no room for romance.
It's difficult to get past the narrator's amazingly bad female voices. I enjoyed reading the book, but listening to it has proved to be impossible.
This compares poorly to every other narration I've heard. All of Crossley's females sound like Monty Pythonish interpretations of women, and he has an irritating habit of raising his voice near the end of a sentence. His characters come across as priggish.
Anyone who can read female voice without making them sound whiny would be a big improvement.
I was not able to get through all of Part 1. It was too painful.
