Started out good - petered out

The narrator did an excellent job. She helped keep the story going even when it started to get old. The story started good but about 2/3 of the way through it lost steam. I think the author should have ended it way before she did. I don't know why she dragged it out as long as she did. I was just waiting for it to be over. If I had never listened to it, it would have been no great loss in my life. LOL.
