Great

I read the book on my kindle. Then downloaded audible for my son who is registered blind and loves audio books. Decided to listen to this story. I’m on book about 13 and it’s good to recap as to where it all started. The narration is good. And I’ve not downloaded book two as loved the audio so much.

will.get better

The story was good, the narration monotone and one paced. The editing was poor with no breaks between sections which combined with the monotone voice meant you quite often went between scenes without realising they had changed subsequently losing the plot, The editor should also have picked up on some mispronunciations and American pronunciation which jar as you are listening.

Narration so poor

The storyline was perfectly fine but this was ruined by the narrator who has a particularly loose command of the English language. Her mispronunciations were really distracting. It was a real pity.
Why did nobody check?

What on earth is soddering?

The story is quite good and so is the performance to an extent, it’s just some of the pronunciation that spoils it. You wouldn’t think the mention of soldering would come up so often and then be mispronounced as soddering, sounds petty but it began to grate after a while. Shame because apart from that and other strange pronunciations it was acceptable.

Good intro to a new heroine but...

The narrator ruined it for me as I had to really concentrate to notice a scene change!

Narration Terrible!

The story line was weak but the narrator couldn’t pronounce some words properly and it annoyed me! It was just about listenable - I gave it a chance. I will not be looking for more books by this author.

Unable to finish

This is a book I will have to read myself. I kept trying to work out why I wasn’t enjoying it and I came to the conclusion that it really sounded like it was being read rather than performed and it irritated me so much I couldn’t finish. It sounded like a series of statements.

boring, too much description,

We started listening to this on a long road trip but it was so tedious it almost put us to sleep. Only worth listening to if you have insomnia.
