Narrator makes me feel as though I'm being abused<br />

I have listened to many similar books but can't go any further with this one. Her voice sounds angry... She is abusing the Listener.

I can't even finish it.

If you never got past 6th grade, this should be right on your reading level. The narrators voice switching from character to character is so amateurish that at times I had to just turn it off. The story is typical of someone who has a very difficult childhood, but it takes a long time to get anywhere. Perhaps if I were reading it, it would be tolerable. I could skip ahead. I am giving up. Not sending it back, since I sent back the last , similar book , "Estranged", by Jessica Gross. Move on.
