Will never touch a book read by this narrator. most annoying and unnatural cadence. Mispronunciations throughout and awful attempt at accents.
Nope. Narration is too distracting.
I'm a huge fan of Courtenay, but this simply wasn't his best effort. There was a great story, but it was too often lost in the mire of everyday tedium of all the characters. It was also a bit formulaic. Courtenay was a great author, but this won't go down as one of his better efforts.
Interesting to learn about Cicero and the times, but the story was pretty ho hum and predictable...surprise there. The narrator didn't help much and sounded like an over trained circus announcer.
An interesting concept, but not that interestingly told. Had a hard time staying with it.
How this ever got published is beyond comprehension. And the narrator is equal to the task. Maybe it was supposed to be a comedy?
Great concept on the first go, but this one just didn't have it. I think there was a plot but I kept falling asleep. Rambling descriptions and gratuitous sex without any direction or plot. Can't recommend this one to anyone. A shame as the first one was so interesting.
The story line is marginally interesting. Full of pedantic preaching about saving the everglades and bad, stereotypical portrayals of southern Floridians. The narration is absolutely the worst I've ever heard in all the audio books I've ever listened to. The worst audio book ever.
Exceptional piece of work, with exceptional narration. One of the best audio books I've ever heard. Too bad it had to have an ending.
