Hard to listen to
The author's voice is way too soft and melodramatic for my taste in a reader. It drove me crazy to the point I do not want to finish. Even with the volume all the way up on my car audio and it was still too quiet. I wish I could return this one. It is so bothersome that I cannot get into the story.
