The narrator made this book unlistenable.

Would you try another book from Bruce Hemming and Sara Freeman and/or Elizabeth Phillips?

Not sure. I would certainly listen to a sample of the audio and wait until there are more reviews to decide if I would buy any.

What was most disappointing about Bruce Hemming and Sara Freeman ’s story?

I am not really sure. The story may have been okay, but I just couldn't get into the book because the narrator was completely the wrong fit for the book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

First time I've ever given a bad review. The narrator made me feel like I was listening to a very simplistic children's book. Very little vocal change between characters. It was almost like I was listening to someone read a book and they could pronounce the words they were saying but had no understanding what they mean. Even though the narrator was speaking clearly and annunciation was correct I kept wondering if English was her second language. When she tried laughing for one of the characters I couldn't take it anymore.

What character would you cut from Grid Down Reality Bites: Volume 1 Part 1?

Not sure, I couldn't finish the book.
