    "Narrator Killed this one"

    There is no flow, the tonality given to people is just so unbelievable, I mean the Tribune( military hero) sounds like my 12 year old daughter when she whines about her curfew

    "narration is poor"

    The narration is poorly performed. Could not get through more than about an hour of the book.
