Stilted

The story was great but the audio was very very stilted. There were long pauses that were unnecessary and gave the book an overall stilted feeling. It was like they pieced it all together from other recordings and didn't edit the pauses or gaps out.

Just terrible

If you’re a young reader, this may be a good book. But if you are someone who appreciates nuance, intriguing rhetoric or any skillful writing, please be aware that my wife and I “hate-listened” to this book out of spite. It wouldn’t be so bad if the narrator was better, but between the writing style, over explaining everything and glossing over any details that are interesting, and the beach boy voice overs, it is just terrible.

Great second book

I cannot wait for the third book. I would even say, the second was better than the first book 🤓

Dang good story!

I had a hard time putting the last two books down. Spend the credit if you like a clean story without being to young adult. It is a coming of age series so it's expected to be about teens etc.

Great book, excellent character development!!! I need more

I love the route this book is taking. I gave 4 stars for performance because sometimes the pauses between voices was a little long. This is my first time reading a series by Robyn and I will definitely be checking out his other material.

Great story but mediocre narration

I've heard other stuff narrated by Vikas Adam and this is subpar for him. It's like he's making the dialogue sound as clunky as possible and using annoying voices intentionally.

The author made the choice to not use many contractions which sort of makes the flow of conversations not feel very natural. Normally a narrator would do their best to smooth it over but that's definitely not the case here.

I'll keep listening because I enjoy the story but the dialogue straight up makes me cringe sometimes.

Ok story ruined by stilted narration

I'm having to listen to this story at 1.6x speed just to deal with the strange gaps and brakes in dialogue. The narrator is now officially on my avoid list after this repeated issue.
