    "clunky narration of clunky prose"

    I seem to be on a roll, and not in a good way. I came to this thinking it would be interesting coupled with Ragtime, there are many historical characters of the period overlapping, though this takes place about 20 years prior to Ragtime. However, I was immediately disappointed by the clunky cliche ridden writing with pointless episodes drawing out the proceedings. The narrator tries with some of the voices and accents but I grew tired quickly of an uninspired historical mystery. Even sped up to 2x to get through it and got about half way and decided I didn't care and stopped. Will ask for credit back to use more wisely. There is a point at which I'm willing to take a hit when I experiment with new authors and genres, but these uninspired narrators and poor novels need to stop. someone must be pre-reading or listening to these choices, how do they get through? I would much rather eagerly await an inspired performance of Pynchon (which we didn't get) than slog through some of this dreck. Sorry can't recommend. (& this author supposedly won 2 straight Edgar awards for mystery novels just prior to this, makes me wonder about the panel of judges)
