Would you try another book from Charlaine Harris and/or the narrators?

I love Charlaine Harris but who ever was narrating the first story was aweful! I couldn't stomach it and stopped listening after 2 minutes.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

YES. WHERE THE HELL IS JOHANNA PARKER??!!!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Nausea

Do NOT get this only you follow the series of each author. These short stories are based and story lines and character that have already been fully developed in other books.

In this hilarious novel from Pulitzer Prize finalist Lydia Millet, a honeymooning couple makes friends with a marine biologist who discovers genuine mermaids in a coral reef - and who, the next night, apparently drowns in her hotel bathtub. As a resort chain swoops in to corner the market on mermaids, the newlyweds (opinionated, skeptical narrator Deb and handsome online gamer Chip, the world's friendliest man) join forces with other vacationers.

Omg painful to listen to. The author labors on with annoying tangents. I actively hated the main character narrating the book after 15 minutes. Didn't get past the 1st chapter.
