The narration ruined this for me. I couldn't do it. In the beginning I didn't like her voice for Sydney, but I thought I would get over it. (I thought she sounded far to naive, flakey and well frankly... Dumb, which if your familiar with the stories, is very much not the case.) But when the voices for the other characters came in (ESPECIALLY any male character.) I realised I wasn't being overly critical. It really was that bad. In my defense I gave it about a quarter of the book to grow on me hoping I'd get used to it. I couldn't take it any more. I bought the hard cover of the book and instantly deleted the download.
Suzanne Collins did a great job with the hunger games. Didn't sound flakey as the girl characters or overly compensate with the male voices.
The music being played over the narration was a poor choice. It made hearing the narration difficult in some places.
