Great Book- Not so great Narrator

Would you listen to Grid Down Reality Bites: Volume 1 Part 1 again? Why?

I loved the kindle versions of this series so was looking forward to the audible so I could listen while on long trips and at work. The narrator was a big disappointment. She miss-pronounces a lot of words and cant say "hay bales" correctly all thru the book. I hope they can make corrections and update to make it better.

What other book might you compare Grid Down Reality Bites: Volume 1 Part 1 to and why?

I love all the info this book has on prepping and surviving. I have read a lot of these type of books and found lots more useful info in this series. I have tried some of them and they really Do work.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

After reading the books, I was so impressed I wrote to the author to suggest release in Audible. Was expecting a male voice. Was let down over the voice they did make it with. Not a good choice in my opinion.

Any additional comments?

Very good series. Don't let the narrator turn you off. If you cant stand her get the kindle version.

What disappointed you about Grid Down Reality Bites: Volume 1 Part 1?

Seems like a good book but I cant get passed the narrators whiney voice.

Would you ever listen to anything by Bruce Hemming and Sara Freeman again?

Yes, if different narrator.

Was expecting better. The narrator was awful

What would have made Grid Down Reality Bites: Volume 1 Part 1 better?

The basic story was good . But the charactors were unbeliveable. And lacked depth.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I wouldn't have most of the good guys die. I know some have to. But 90%. of them

How could the performance have been better?

A different reader. It made listening a chore. She couldn't do voices. It was just one long monologue

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Very disappointed. Could have been so much better. I do like the survivalist genre. But

Any additional comments?

I will try another in the series.I do like the survivalist genre. Im just not sure about this series. There are much better around, eg. Going Home, by A. American was much better. Dies The Fire, S.M. Stirling
