The pace of this book is excellent, and the story is engaging, albeit a bit overdone.
But holy crap, who hired Angela Dawe as this narrator..Show More »? I almost can't follow the story because she's so monstrously bad. I'm shocked to see how many books she's narrated. I don't know how anyone can stand to listen to her.
Hear for yourself. Listen to the sample. Unless it's a question (or unless she's speaking for another character), her intonation is exactly the same (especially the END of every sentence), no matter what the context.
And she clearly punctuates her sentences with pauses so that you get the full impact of each annoying repetition in the way she speaks. I find myself wishing she'd just run two sentences together so I wasn't drawn into to focus on her nightmarish delivery.
Everyone's different. If her delivery doesn't bother you, get this book. It's almost too much for me to bear.
