I very rarely write reviews (all positive so far) but felt I had to say something about this book. I should also say that I persevered until the end: I buy lots of audiobooks and spend up to several hours a day listening, so I can't afford to waste the cost of a purchase, unless the book is execrable. This one isn't, but the story and story-telling are mediocre (3 stars): the characters are wooden, stereotyped, and totally unsympathetic. The plot is fairly predictable, hence the perseverance. What sets this book apart is the absolutely terrible reader -- a grating voice to begin with but poorly-spoken and unbelievable voices for almost every one of the characters as well. There are also several unforgivable mispronunciations of fairly common words, which grate on the ear of this fairly literate listener. I will never again buy a book read by this reader.
