I have listened to the prequel and book 1 with a different narrator so it was a little disconcerting to hear a "new" voice for "Mark" in book 2 but I got use to it in the first chapter. What I didn't like were the sound effects that went along with the narration. It was weird and I haven't heard anything like it in the hundreds of books I have listened to previously. it makes it sound corny and is distracting from the content of the book. I like the story but I hope the future audibles for this series do not include the sound effects and I hope the original narrator, Daniel Penz, returns, I liked his voice better but that maybe because "he" was "Mark" in the first 2 books I listened to....
Maybe in a different series.
Leave out the sound effects, they detract from the story.
First let me say that I love this series and thoroughly enjoy Mary McDonald's storytelling and imaginative characters. This is the second audible book from this series.
The performance had me searching for a hard copy so I wouldn't have to listen to the extreme vocal fry of the reader. I even had it playing at 1.25 speed! Add to that the ridiculous sound effects and dated porn music. I almost gave up.
Again, this is a great series but read the Kindle version.
This book was such a disappointment after the first book. The narration was good in the first book and the story was interesting. This story is slow and I just couldn't finish it. The narration was irritating, it had sound effects and strange dramatic dialogue that reminded me of bad radio shows. I couldn't decide if this is a Christian book and if it is, the description needs to present it as such.
I'm not going to read the third book.
"Is this narrator for real?!!"
This is unlistenable. I'll just read it myself.
Managed one minute before asking for refund. Book one is great by the way.
