Worst narrator I've ever encountered so far.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend the ebook or paperback, sure. The audiobook? No.
The story was,interesting and had likable characters. I don't want to spoil the twist, but if you've watched some Japanese anime - namely something like Mirage of Blaze or Yami no Matsuei, then this would probably be something you'd enjoy.

I don't recommend the audiobook because the narrator was atrocious. I only got it because it was discounted when I purchased the ebook (now I know why!). He read the story with ZERO emotion, no distinction between character voices, barreled through punctuation (seriously, I was imagining commas, semi colons, periods all lying on the ground like road kill), barely took a breath between words, and just had this really unpleasant accent (sounded like a mix of New York/New Jersey with Boston mixed in - whatever it was it grated on my nerves). Also, there was this really weird thing where the recording seemed to fluctuate in volume. In some parts seemed to fade out which was annoying. And the audio didn't sound as clear as others I've listened to. Just bad production quality all around.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Julian. I have a thing for somewhat nerdy characters with inner alphas. And I thought he handled the 'revelation' pretty well. Also, hard not to like a character who watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV Show, not the movie).

What didn’t you like about Andrew Schwartz’s performance?

Everything. No seriously, there was no saving grace with this performance. If you need an example of how not no narrate a book, this is it.

Was His Hearth worth the listening time?

I'd have to say no. I now have to read the ebook version to wipe the memory of this audio from my brain.

Any additional comments?

Re-do this with a different narrator and I'd be more than happy to buy it again.
