What disappointed you about The Wolves at the Door?
I think the story may be interesting but the narrator is SO BAD that I can not listen to it. She sounds like she is reading Nancy Drew to 10 year-olds. It is so overy dramatic I am expecting her to say "OK childeren, can you say Nazi". I am barely into the first chapter of what may be a good book but I can not get past this narrator's inflection.
Has The Wolves at the Door turned you off from other books in this genre?
No, but I will make sure I never read anything with this narrator
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I am disappointed that I can't finish the book and insulted that the reading is so condescending.

This is a thrilling narrative. At least, I think it is. I found the narration to be too matter of fact or light or something. It would be perfect for Jane Austen; it did not work for true spies and nazi atrocities. Plus, much of the story takes place in France, so having the French names mispronounced was incredibly distracting. Surely that is something the narrators could be better prepared for by the producers?
