Very confusing and slow; hated the reader.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A better description and a better reader.
What could Peter Straub have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I think the story line was very meandering and hard to follow.
What didn’t you like about Patrick Lawlor’s performance?
His narration and the way he portrayed other characters just didn't work for me.

Great book, mediocre performance
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This is one of my favorite books. Every time I read it, and I've read it at least half a dozen times, I find something new to admire. So maybe you can imagine my excitement when I discovered that Mystery had been made into an Audible book. What you won't be able to imagine is my disappointment with the reader. Except for a single sentence at the end, he lacked all modulation, all nuance. What he had in abundance, regrettably, was zeal, and this he brought to bear on each page, each paragraph, each sentence (except one). What a disappointment.
