    "Narrator Awful!"

    I enjoyed the book BUT the narrator was the worst I have ever heard during three years with Audible! After the first half-hour or so she seemed to "warm up" some but it has been a chore to finish this book. Only because the story itself is very good did I continue on!

    "Book OK, Narrator HORRIBLE"

    The story line was okay, although plot dragged in many places and the narrator was absolutely HORRIBLE!

    "Listen to the sample!"

    Karen White is one of the worst readers I have ever heard. Wait for a better narrator or just read it for yourself.
