Would you try another book from Janet Evanovich and/or Debi Mazar?

I would try another book from the author but not the reader.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It was unfortunate that this narrator was chosen to read this book. She read too fast and it was difficult to tell who was talking because she hardly changed her voice.

Any additional comments?

Someone should have checked into how to pronounce Chambersburg, the main area the novel takes place. Within the first 3 minutes, the reader calls it "Shamsburg". Someone should have caught that. Also, the unabridged version would have been much better.

What made the experience of listening to March Into Hell the most enjoyable?

I have listened to the prequel and book 1 with a different narrator so it was a little disconcerting to hear a "new" voice for "Mark" in book 2 but I got use to it in the first chapter. What I didn't like were the sound effects that went along with the narration. It was weird and I haven't heard anything like it in the hundreds of books I have listened to previously. it makes it sound corny and is distracting from the content of the book. I like the story but I hope the future audibles for this series do not include the sound effects and I hope the original narrator, Daniel Penz, returns, I liked his voice better but that maybe because "he" was "Mark" in the first 2 books I listened to....

Would you be willing to try another one of Lee Alan’s performances?

Maybe in a different series.

Any additional comments?

Leave out the sound effects, they detract from the story.
