Decent story, but not the best female narrator.

How could the performance have been better?

I haven't finished listening, so i could be jumping the gun, but I've mainly heard the female narrator for the book, except for one chapter. Which wouldn't bother me, if she had done a better job. I understand they have to edit pieces together so they can take breaks from reading and such, but where they clipped it together was awful timing. And there seem to be a bit of feedback from the mic quite often. And the quality of the recording varies. And lastly, she doesn't really have a wide range of characters. Not the best, and I'm tempted not to finish the book. We'll just see if it gets any better.

Any additional comments?

It was an okay listen. To be honest. The narrator's voice kind of got on my nerves a little. And the book itself was just a little too cheesy, at least in my opinion. Not the whole book was like that, but a good portion. Wouldn't necessarily recommend it.
