While the idea of this story is brilliant, the execution of storytelling is most decidedly not! Having not read the print version of this book, I don't know if the reader is in experienced, inept or the writing so hard to comprehend that she cannot decipher how to read the story. I was really looking forward to this book, but can't abide listening to such a broken and poorly read piece.
