I wish I loved this book!

This book wasn't horrible but the narrator was. I found myself skipping chapters just so I could finish the book because I couldn't handle the narrator! Every word she spoke, unless she was speaking for another character, sounded as if she was asking a question. Her voice made the book drag on as if it would never end. The book would have been much better if it was read by someone else. The storyline was good and the ending was pretty good too.

GREAT STORY damaged by a LOUSY performance!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The story is compelling but the narrator of this audio book is as interesting as cardboard! She over enunciates words to the point that she sounds mentally challenged, or as if she is a robot.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

No, but it was interesting to see where the story was going.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alison Campbell?

A rock would have done a better job of narrating this work.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?
