This book is so ridiculously hard to understand in my car that I couldn't listen to it.
This is a very unique concept, much more interesting than I had anticipated, having downloaded it on a friend's recommendation. The author's time-traveling plot is fascinating and I found myself often thinking about it when I wasn't listening to it. I cried at the end, but it was a wonderful book.
I'm not sure whether it's the main character's whine or just that the story is boring, but I stop listening after about 2/3 of the book because I just couldn't care about the outcome and haven't been able to bring myself to go back to it.
Periodically, there is low-sample-rate music played so loudly that it's difficult to hear the narrator. This went on for so long at the beginning of the book that I nearly abandoned it. The narrator isn't very expressive, though he seems to get better as the book goes on.
The narrator's volume varies wildly between when he's reading description and when he's reading dialogue. I was constantly turning the volume to hear him while he narrated and then shuddering and turning it down when he started bellowing the dialogue at a painful volume.
