Narrator was awful

I hate to put a Narrator down, but this one kept me from getting very far. She has stops and starts that make the characters sound mechanical; having no personalities. I keep wanting to just go on with the story, but it is very hard to get into it because there are no properly nuances.

I’m really bummed, and hope that this review prompts a change in narrator because I would like to hear the book in a way that makes it interesting; in a way I think it could be.
