So many narrators!

I was surprised to find different narrators for almost each chapter ranging from professional actor quality to what sounded like students in training. The story was good, but the varying quality was a distraction.

Terrrrrrrrrible narration.

The storyline is great. Highly recommend, but NOT this set of narrators. There were several different people reading, in no special order. The sound quality is pitiful and most of the readers stumbled over words. Even on high volume it was sometimes impossible to hear.
