Just can't listen

This story is not bad, but I couldn't get through the first third of the book to let it finish creating the characters and building the story line. I didn't finish listening because the reader just seemed to drone on and on. With the exception of the mariner-type accent of the first mate, he just didn't give the characters any personality. My mind would drift while trying to listen. I simply ran out of patience.
