    "Horrible Narrator"
    What disappointed you about The First Deadly Sin?

    I couldn't get through the first chapter because the narrator was so dry. Total waste of money.

    Story
    "I've never been so bored in my life."

    I can't believe I wasted my credit on this! I have spent a week trying to get intrested in this and I give up. I made it to chapter 6, was so bored I wanted to stab myself in the eye with a pencil. I hated the narrator, I hated the characters, I mean for the love of all that is holy we are 6 chapters into this and no one has died yet, except maybe the readers of bordem. I really had no idea from the description that this was set in the 70's, I've lived through the 70's it wasn't that great why in heavens name would I want to read about it. Unless you are suffering from insomnia I wouldn't recommend that you purchase this snoozer.

    "Very, very boring"

    I suppose this book was written when books were written slowly, around 1700 or so. I listen to it because I have paid for it, and knit and think instead.

    Suspense, Where Art Thou?!
