Great novel, troubles in narration

This is another great novel and I highly recommend reading it, but it may be best to consider another narration. Although the voices were done well, if inconsistently, the sentences were not read with appropriate diction. This ensured the listener must apply great effort in order to comprehend the reading. Additionally, the last sentence is not clear, spoiling the end of the novel.

Terrible narration

A great book. But the narration is just terrible. I will have to buy another download with another narrator.
