    Story
    "Narrator acts like he's speaking to a 5 year old"

    I listened to this because my 12 and 14 year old step-sons have been assigned Carol Gorman for book reports. The story is good, I liked the characters and the message. It felt age appropriate. It's multi-dimensional while staying simple enough to follow along.
    Unfortunately, the narrator ruined it for me. I didn't recommend it for my sons to listen to it because of the narrator. He talks like he's reading to a very young child. His voice is sing-songy and almost sounded patronizing, like he's reading a bed-time story to a 5 year old.
