What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
a better narrator
What could Steven Barnes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I've read Steven Barnes' books in the past and enjoyed them. This one just didn't work for me. I didn't care about the characters. and after listening to about two thirds of part one the story didn't seem to be going anywhere - Just a series of incidents with unrelated characters doing uninteresting things.
What didn’t you like about Barrie Buckner’s performance?
His voice is too rough and has an odd rhythm. Everything is at the same tone with a stress on about every fourth or fifth word no matter what the meaning.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
I would be willing to try another Steven Barnes book with a different narrator.

A mediocre story, read by someone who can't pronounce basic words. For example, "he served the connection" instead of "severed the connection" and "satanized" instead of "sanitized", "wadded into the water" (waded) are just a few examples. The entire story is littered with mis-pronounciations from start to finish - disappointing to say the very least.
