I'm confused on the good reviews
The writing mostly. The grammar could have been better , but just her over all fluidity needs a lot of work.
The funny thing is that on Marlon Braccia's Voice page she mentions this style as being..articulate. Which is very ironic because she was anything but. She mumbled several times, slurred words together and there were even points where I just could not understand what shew as saying no matter how many times I listened.
I think this could have been a very entertaining book without the glaring problems with the writing and reader. It's really a shame I was looking forward to this.

Book ruined by narrator
I would but not in audible form. The book has some juvenile sentences and word choices but overall, the story is a good one. The narrator ruined the experience for me with mistakes and dead air and repeated sentences and paragraphs. It was hard to listen to the whole book but since I paid for it, I suffered through it. Good thing Book 2 has a different narrator or I would forego this whole series in audible form.
The storyline was fresh and attention grabbing.
Anybody. She did not do a good job at all. She drops letters and words, loses her place, repeats sentences and sometimes whole sections of paragraphs and just made listening to this book pure torture.
With a different narrator, maybe. With this lady reading it, I feel like it was a waste of my time and money.
Quality control in audible books is usually really good. Mispronounced words are usually the worst mistake you hear. This book sounds like it was being read to a child and recorded by a child.
