    "Terrble narrator"
    What disappointed you about Firefly Beach?

    The narrator is so terrible I can't even finish the book. Usually if I don't like the narrator the story is good enough that I forget about it and just get lost in the book. Not so with this book. It grieves me to say such awful things. Perhaps if it were a better narrator the book would have been more enjoyable. The book was pretty boring though. I made a mistake in not listening to the sample.
