    Story
    "blah blah blah yada yada yada Narrator horrible"

    Couldn't get through the first chapter. This might have been more tolerable with a different narrator. I don't care for this one at all. DRY slow monotone. Geez. She might be good with a romantic novel but now this genre. The story may be good but I just cannot get past the narrator!

    "major disappointment"

    I always try and listen to a new author every month and sometimes that policy results in great new finds.not this time! The book started well but soon degenerated. Becoming confusing, unpleasant and unbelievable. Very cross I wasted my credit,however, even more cross I wasted my time.
