The story is really good. However, the person reading was ruining it for me. She would pitch her voice all the time making it sound like elementary school reading, almost a sing-song. I don't know but somebody with a little more acting ability should have been picked, at least so listeners could identify characters by changes in voice depth and speech pattern. She made everybody sound the same, be it Grace or Parish on Niall. It seems that all three had the same thought patterns and used the same pitch and cadence of voice. I was thoroughly disappointed.
I loved listening to the book in Richard Armitage's performance. As always, he did a great job. The book is great by itself and his reading only made is so much better.
Please please please change the narrator for this book!! I am begging!!! By Chapter 4 I was ready to give up. Absolutely the worst reading ever - cannot tell when regular text and when dialog as the tone of his voice hardly changes. The pace is simply dismal. He is ruining an otherwise good book and makes it sound boring and confusing. I miss Anna Fields :(
