I've loved this whole series but almost quit listening because of the narration. All the music, sound effects & other unnecessary sounds were distraction & very annoying. I barely finished listening to the whole thing.
I'm not 4, I don't need sound effects and music in an audiobook.
The narration is so bad that listening to an otherwise great book is hard.
NO! He needs to be beaten and never allowed around a recording device again. Why sound effects? Why music? Less is more. Just read the dang book for crying out loud.
I had to speed up the cadence to get past the worst narration in the history of narrators. If my ears could cuss they'd make a sailor blush.
I mean good lawd! Book one was bad narration but I'd rather be donkey kicked in the cherries than listen to this guy again.
I struggled to finish this one, the narration wasn't quite as good as the others but it was the horrible music and audio track that just killed it for me. I just about returned this one to Audible.
Yeah, I guess..I listen on my two hours of drive time for work and when I do my dishes. NO, when I have to rewind because someone thinks it is cool to relive the radio shows of old and throw in the sounds of a vehicle. I get it, he is driving. I do not require audible aides for this.
nothing compares ... Please do not take that as a good vote.
where to start..the idea may have been grand when you thought of it, it sucks 102 degree camel butt now
PFFFT! Hail no, all the men in this book sound alike, minus the 19 year old kid in the medical unit.
Brother, you write so well and your storyline is great. Just never pick your presenters, let someone that is not involved pick. But what do I know, you are making a dollar on this not me.
never read the book.
disliked the fact that all the women characters sound like 85 year olds, and grimm and other characters sound like they are sick and need to cough something up.
I've really enjoyed this series, but this new narrator is horrible!
I find myself having to force down revulsion at how he try's,and fails badly at changing his tone of voice to represent different people in the story.
He even mixes up the tones between characters, so you wonder who is talking, and why did that character say that.
Like I said earlier, great story, Horrible Narrator!
Yes the story is a goodish one.
It's not 'memorable', it's just a good tale.
Yeah, no. The sound effects were distracting and annoying. The sound level of the narration itself goes up and down randomly, causing it to be by turns quiet and loud. All the women sound awful. The 'echo' effect when the characters were thinking was annoying. There is no emotion in the reading, it's just stated 90% of the time. The male characters are all raspy-voiced and deep and I suppose 'manly'.
Audible should take in good stories, and *they* should get to choose or approve narrators. I've seen too many SHTF stories ruined by awful narration.
For the story. The narration makes it a painful time, though.
Narration. Can we PLEASE have good narration?
Buy it to get through the story, because its great. Grit your teeth, because its horrifyingly bad. Don't by if you were not a die hard fan. You hate it, and miss a great set of characters, and fantastic story line. Over the series
Is this a book or a play in a theater?
Almost lost me with this narration technique was ready to give up the series please go back to a normal sounding person to read the book
This is more a review of the narration and production, than the actual story itself. In the previous book, the narrator could have had a little more masculine voice, as well as gotten rid of the silly so called musical additions. They went over the top with an overly masculine sounding narrator and there seems to be a full studio musical production. I enjoy listening to a book and letting my own mind do the additions, not listening to a staged production. The author also seemed to miss the nature of Bishop's character in this book. While I have enjoyed the series, aside from the last twos narration problems, I can't see myself purchasing any more of the series. Alan's style has completely put me off the series and the production additions settled it for me. I am happy with leaving Bishop and his family riding off into the sunset and I will turn to the sunrise forgetting the rest of the books.
