I love, love this book, the person who is reading it is terrible... it's making my favorite book really hard to enjoy!! he is to fast!! AAAARRRGGGGHHHH
Someone else to read it, someone going slower making me engage in the story!
The narrator ruined this story for me. It was a very flat performance, devoid of emotion. It was hard for me to even switch to reading the book on Kindle after I'd heard some of the narration, because the awful narrator's voice was in my head!
The character of Will is self assured and charismatic. The narrator did not convey these traits and ruined the character for me. Read the book and skip the narration.
It was hard to follow to story because the pauses between the end off the sentence abs the beginning of the new sentence were to short.
The narration and technical recording really ruined this story. It's sounded like one Looooooong sentence. No emotion, heaving breathing into the mic and no phasing between sentences and chapters. I had to keep rewinding to figure out who, what, where and when.
I'm not sure if the authors listen to the recordings, but if they do they should pull this one off the shelf
The storyline was pretty good but when you are listening to a book, it is all about the narrator and this one was not good at all! In my mind...in the first book, Will was strong and athletic! In this book, due to the reader, Will is a wimp! I would have enjoyed the book much better had a different narrator been used!
Are you kidding! Who ends a book that way...guess someone who is writing a 3rd book to the series. I know series leave you hanging but this one just seemed to end so abruptly that I thought something was wrong with my phone. I liked the book. Not as much as the first but it was still a good listen.
The narrator did not pronounce many of the names as they were in the first book. It was just weird. But the story was so entertaining I overlooked it for the most part.
I busy myself living life, chasing smiles, and enjoying adventures!
This book was difficult to enjoy because of the narration. The voice fit the character but beyond that I was not happy with the narration. It was as if the entire book was one painfully long run-on sentence. Without natural breaks at the end of sentences or even entire sections in the chapter I was constantly confused. Throughout the entire story I was trying to figure out who was doing/saying what and even what day we were on. Did we move on to another event or is this all happening at once? I found myself drifting off because it was impossible to keep up. I am going to try to read the kindle version and see if I enjoy it more. At this point, I was not overly impressed. Overall, it was a good distraction during a long drive but I did not walk away feeling as if I had experienced anything with these characters.
