Liked Labyrinth. Gave up on this 1/2 way through, which I hate doing. But it is SO dull, and has hackneyed phrases such as " She felt as if the [taro reader] was looking into her soul". Yuck. Plot is slow, characters not interesting. Waste of my money and my time

I agree totally with the other reviewer.... I so wanted to listen to this book, after reading Labyrinth and actually waiting for this to appear on audible. But it is a huge dissapointment due to the narration. Why choose an american? This woman is so so wrong for the part? And the musical interludes? WHY???? Oh what a shame.... I couldn't manage more than ten or fifteen minutes of listening time and I have abandoned my brand new i touch and gone back to the BOOK for this one. Sad waste of an audio credit....

In my haste to enjoy the book, I made the mistake of opting for purchasing without listening to the sample. A fine narrator is the key to an audiobook and this one falls at the first hurdle. I admit this is my own mistake bit I will not be opting for anything narrated by Lorelei King again: I'm scratchy about her pronunciation and in this case her accent does not suit the story. Add to this an opening with mock-'The Exorcist' music and it all seems rather down-market. I suppose you get what you pay for.
To be entirely upfront this review is based on only a couple of minutes listening. I may manage to listen to it all, as it is a mere 7 hours. Be warned - always listen to the sample first.
