The story itself wasn't too bad, although it wasn't compelling. I had to force myself to finish it, which is rare--normally my favorite memoirs are those concerning a child's illness or disability and how the parents and family deal with it.
I'd have to read a printed copy of this book in order to review it fairly and accurately--the narrator was just that bad. Even during the most dramatic scenes, she spoke in a sing-song tone, and much of the story was conveyed in an inappropriately sweet, rather flat delivery. I've listened to books previously in which I was able to overlook poor performance on the strength of the storyline alone. This wasn't one of those books.
Listen to the sample first; I was unable to do so because I purchased it on an iPad. Had I sampled this awful performance, I wouldn't have made the purchase.

Does anyone at audible ever listen to books themselves? This is a very interesting story but I am struggling to listen, Allie Mars is a terrible reader, no inflections, an awful accent and very monotonous voice. Having got a brain injured daughter I want to hear Karin's story. So far I have listened to the first hour. It should be a fascinating story, it is but I will have to read it not listen to it.
