Great Story, Horrible Narration
Yes, but never another book with this narrator.
Emotion where there was none called for. He gave a lot (a lot) of words an "er" ending which were not "er" words.
No, I think the story was complete.
The story was wonderful. I liked the characters, I liked the way it flowed, but the narration is one of the worst I've ever heard. I would like to listen again, but with a different narrator.
