Overall, the story was interesting and kept my attention. But there is one think I remember most about this audiobook. Mr. Stechschulte kept pronouncing "javelina" with a "j" instead of an "h". Now, maybe that's the way they say it in Texas, but it's not the way we say it in Arizona. You may be thinking that word wouldn't come up much in this book, but it did quite a few times. Each time it was like nails down a chalkboard.
I found the performance to be very stilted. The story is also very slow-moving. I keep checking the time remaining, hoping it'll be over soon.
I didn't give this book 1 star because I did actually listen to the whole thing. However, I was annoyed most of the time. I guess there was only so much the narrator could do with the material, but I found myself telling her to "shut up". The book was very repetitive; it could have been much shorter (and better). My reaction at the end of the book: it's about time! and yay, it's over! Although a friend said if I made it through this one, continue with the 2d (but skip the 3d), I will move on to something else.
This was my first Audible book so I wasn't sure what to expect. The story was good, but the sound quality varied. It seemed as though they switched readers in the middle of the book and tried to patch in certain sections. Also, the file cut off partway through the epilogue. Given the convenience of downloading the book, it was definitely worth a listen.
