I was so disappointed in the audio of this book that I found I could not listen after the 3rd chapter
Get a different person to read the book
Anything could have helped this performance the voices were hard to hear at times, the intonations were terrible. This was a complete disaster.
This was a new author for me and I purchased the book because of others reviews on audio. I will never do that again.
I thought this was going to be mostly a thriller, but tho not quite a bodice ripper it's in that genre. Then there's all this angst between the two main characters who realize on first meeting they need to be together, but are on different sides of the law. This "we want to but we can't" conundrum cycles thru way too many scenes to the point of repetitive tedium. I almost quit a couple of times. The narrator has a peculiar cadence which was initially off putting and that I never warmed up to. He uses a falsetto voice for two different characters. I've never met one person who talked like that never mind two in a book with like a dozen characters.
Once again, it wasn't the book itself that was bad, it was the narrator. If you can get over that, it's worth listening to. I have read this series of books several times and wanted to be able to listen to it while I work. The first book in the series (The Last Enemy) had a much better narrator and was very enjoyable.
Most of the books I've purchased have had pretty good narrators. A few have had really bad narrators. This is one of those.
Horrible voices. Can't really explain how awful it is , but if I hadn't read the book and listened to the first one , I wouldn't have finished it.
Story was great. Good author. Would buy other books by this author, but not with this narrator.
I think I would have liked the story better if the narrator was better. Wyntner Woody needs to find a new job.
I wonder if the author approves the narrator before the story is read. If I had spent time developing a story, I would have wanted someone who knows what they are doing to read my work.
I don't know, I barely listened.
