I have written very few reviews out of a few hundred books, in part we all like something different so what a book means to me it may not to you. But this book is so incrediblely BAD that I can't stand it, I have had some stupid slow bad written books but this one bakes the cake. I have waisted hours of my life and I wish I could get my book credit back and the other review are not great so proceed with caution.

Altitude was pretty flat!

This book just never seemed to really get going. It was a though the author was trying to make a point, but never got around to making it clear. The worst part was the narrator. She talked so slow and emphasized ever punctuation mark. It was like having your first grade teacher read to the class. I could hardly stand it at first. This might be a better read than a listen. I would not bother downloading it.
