It was pretty good, it could get better.

I liked the story overall. But the pacing was a little bit hard to sit through without falling asleep. I listened to this on a plane ride to Europe. I did think that the plane ride had a part in it, but after I got over the jet lag in Europe, I tried to listen to it again and it just put me to sleep. It could benefit from some editing.

The author, Elizabeth Janet Gray, is a very good author. I just think that the pacing of the reading needed a little work. Stuart Blinder has a good voice, but the slowness of the reading would just put me to sleep.

I am relatively new to audible, so I don’t have much experience to these audio books. So maybe I am just used to reading at my own pace. But in all I did very much like the book.

Good reader, but it skips all the time!!

This would have been great, but it constantly skips in the second half. It was really frustrating.
