None of these factors would mean much taken alone, but together, they spell out a population that is distinctly skewed from the normal. Surprisingly, hardly anyone in the valley realizes that most of them are different from the average. They simply think they live in a good place among good people. Then the investigation starts.

I love to read and I love to listen to good books! Because I can listen while I walk, its great for both my health and the health of my dog Rubi.
The narrator! He has a lovely voice but its soooo monotonous! Its almost impossible to tell who is speaking because they all sound the same! I gave up listening by chapter 6.
I will still willingly explore books in this genre and even by this author because I have read two of his books before and loved them. It was the narration that let this title down not the author. It might be a good book but who knows? its almost impossible to listen to.
The performance could hardly have been worse. Even that aggressivly angry sounding woman who reads the JD Robb books would have been better and she drives me crazy.
I dont know that I would cut any of the characters. It was too hard to distinguish them from one another.
This book was a big disappointment made worse by the fact that it seems I cant return it without an international phonecall. Audible, just occasionally your customer service stinks
A Strange Valley is a very strange book. It starts off with a nice sci-fi-idea, a nice what-if, but never lifts from the ground. Instead of trying to build suspense the writer spends most of the novel to quasiliberal sexual fantasies that with time get tiresomely lecherous. Quite a disapointment.
The valley is a free love community, embracing straight, gay and menage a trois relationships. The narrator makes up his own pronunciations, adding and dropping letters at will.
