a different narrator, and better editing.
good plot, kept you guessing till the end
at times I questioned if the reader was a person. very robotic cadence and strange diction on very easy names like Carter - pronounced by narrator as almost 2 separate words.. car ter
editing was also poor. many instances of repetition on what must be splice points.
The narrator did no accents, though the characters were specifically described having certain accents. There was very little delineation between characters, and the narrator really had a problem with pacing.....missing commas and making sentences awkward.
Nothing with this narrator.
Accents done as described in the text, and an overall better sense of how to read dialogue.
The story had potential, but I have no desire to see how it ends.
Returning this book.
