Reviews

Lars Rolander is my favorite narrators and this was fantastic.

(5 stars)

Could not tolerate narration.

(0.5 stars)

This narrator has a reading style I found difficult to listen to. He frequently rolls his R's so tremendously it sounds like purring or a lawn mower trying to start. Initially I thought this effect was intentionally introduced to differentiate a character, perhaps. I was wrong. I abandoned this book after 3 or 4 minutes.
