    What disappointed you about Dynasty?

    I get the content of the story. I get that the author has limited 3rd party knowledge of the topic, so he uses A LOT of vernacular dialogue to cover up lack of detail. However, where is the editor on this one? You lost me in the prologue when you discussed the drugs south of the "Mason-DIXIE" line. REALLY?!! All together, its a mediocre story wrapped up in sloppy writing and poor editing.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Caujuan Akim Mayo?

    The only thing that could make this story worse is a terrible narrator...enter Mayo.No emotion, very monotone and uninspired. He cashed in a favor on someone to get this gig. I could almost hear him in his bedroom, as he mispronounced words. I could not tell iff he had a speech impairment or if it was just poorly executed. Pray it was the former so I will not make any wise cracks about it. Never the less, it made it very difficult to understand and follow along. He sounds like he is unfamiliar with using a microphone. It does not sound like a natural reading. his volume and fluctuations are restrained due to being too close to the mic. this eliminates the true emotion of the story. The Cartel by Ashley Jaquavis is much better. The story does not get bogged down with general facts and the dialogue is much better.I want the last 4+ hours of my life back! (or just the credit I used to buy it on Audible)

    "Story would be much better if..."

    Too much noise in back ground to clearly hear narrator. Narrator speeds thur parts so fast it's hard to keep up with which charater is speaking. I enjoy Dutch, this one just had too many distractions.
