Would you try another book from Sue Brown and/or Max Lehnen?
Sue brown, yes. Narrator NO
Would you be willing to try another book from Sue Brown? Why or why not?
Yes the story wasnt bad
How did the narrator detract from the book?
He made me wish i read the book instead - the way he sounds continuously surprised and ending all sentenses with questionmarks makes an otherwise good story almost unbearable to listen to.
What character would you cut from Final Admission?
None i think
Any additional comments?

Oh, what this audiobook could have been in the hands of a Gomez Pugh or a Greg Tremblay! But this narrator has completely ruined the listening experience for me. He has a highish tenor voice, which is itself not a dealbreaker, but this is a book with pretty heavy subject matter, and he reads the whole thing with such exaggerated inflections that it sounds like he's reading a children's story.
Consequently, the story itself, which is not bad at all, and, as I said, is pretty serious going, is completely trivialized. The vocal characterizations, particularly of the one prominent female character, are so cartoony, they make the whole thing feel comical, which is definitely NOT the tone of this story. It could have been a really above average listening experience with a different narrator.
As it is, I got about 25% into the audio, enough to know I want to continue with the book, but CANNOT GO ANY FURTHER with this awful narrator. I will make a point to avoid this voice in the future.
Book: 4.5 stars. Good, thought provoking story. Read it; don't listen to it.
