Would you try another book from Sarah Jio and/or Emily Durante?
I may try another book from Sarah Jio but not if it's narrated by Emily Durante.
Any additional comments?
I have listened to so many wonderful books with simply fantastic narration (Beautiful Ruins being a recent favorite), but this is my first review. I feel compelled to speak about the quality of the recording or the narration.
When I first started listening to the story I actually thought there was something wrong with my iPhone or the Audible app as the narrator sounded like she was the computer generated voice of an early Mac computer - seriously. I then thought that the Standard Quality download may be the issue, so I changed my settings and downloaded the HQ version but it sounded the same (as does the sample audio on this site).
I very much wanted to enjoy the book but the stiff, compressed sounding narration just kept taking me out of the story. I'd be interested to hear if others feel the same. I recommend that folks listen to the audio sample to see if they can tolerate the narration prior to purchasing this.

The author does a good job of separating her characters, although, at first it is a little confusing. However, once you have the identity of each character firmly placed the story becomes much more interesting and has a good " whodunit" novel!
