    "Terrible performance - could not finish the book"
    What didn’t you like about Ely Miles’s performance?

    Mr. Miles performance is terrible. His accents are hard to listen to and inaccurate and his cadence is distracting. All of his female voices sound like they are either terrified or screeching.

    "Another good book, despite the performance"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Heppner's story line is imaginative and engaging, as usual.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It bothers me that he sounds like James Earl Jones trying to do a poor impression of Shatner doing an overly-emotive James T. Kirk. Also, he pauses or adds emphasis at the oddest--seemingly random--places in his narration. But what REALLY gets me are the mispronunciations! It is nucLEar, not nucYOUler. In the context of the book, it's CAValry, not CALvary (both real words, but not interchangeable). These two examples are not the only mispronunciations, by far. Did no one listen to his performance as he was being recorded? His production team bears partial responsibility for poor quality of this performance.
