    "Narrator is difficult to listen to"

    I fell asleep in the first 15 minutes and seem to have missed an hour of narrative. I went back, but I don't seem to have missed much. The narrator reads VVVEEEEEERRRRRYYYY slowly, almost as if it is an old tape that stretched, and her voice lacks character. It goes up and down in the appropriate spots, but that's not all there is to expression. The pitch changes convey nothing.

    I've never considered previewing the narration to be important, as, while some narrators are better than others, I had not (until now) run across one I couldn't listen to. Be warned! I do not expect to finish this book, and plan to see if there's a way to return it and get another.

    As for the book itself, who knows? Thinking back to the content so far, I would say that it's rather mediocre but not offensive, and, as in Elsie Dinsmore or Tom Swift, things will happen. Sdaly, I feel no compulsion to find out. This narrator does the author no favors.
