Reviews

(1 stars)

This is probably a good book. The female narrators voices are not clear and concise. Also one reads as though she didn't have time for it and needed to get done QUICKLY. It would be nice to see a second version with different narrative.

bad reader

(2.5 stars)

couldn't finish this because the reader that sounds like a little girl was horrible. I tried to stick it out because the story seemed interesting and during the few chapters that she wasn't reading I enjoyed it but in the end I just couldn't take her voice anymore

(2 stars)

Ruined by the reading yet again! Had to abandon hope. Probably was a good story but too difficult to understand the heavy accents and ignorance of punctuation or inflection. In all fairness, some of the readers were fine.

(3 stars)

Good plot and characterizations. Reader may want to increase the bass level on future recordings and, perhaps, the volume. I hope this helps.
