It takes real talent to get into character without overdoing things. The guys who narrate Stephen King's books do a pretty good job. But I just can't get into this.

The guy overdid the narration viciously in an attempt to caricature a narcissistic abuser; the writing was partly to blame but the narrator really overplayed the role and made this a pretty intolerable audiobook. The writing was a bitter take on an abusive person by someone who seemed to have been hurt by one, less art and more vendetta.

The voice was actually grating to the ears and I am severely disappointed that this was recommended as I signed up with Audible. Seriously considering cancelling my membership.
