Would you listen to The Deceived again? Why?
Not by this narrator. He tried too hard and made it hard to buy into the story instead of just letting it unfold.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Any additional comments?
I'm glad to see that Scott Brick is narrating the remaining books in the series. He's worth paying more money for because he makes the story come alive.

The Cleaner was a good book with an excellent narrator, Scott Brick. William Dufris is painful to listen to. When I started listening to ???The Deceived,??? I had to check the title on the IPOD to make sure I didn???t down load a western. Dufris adds a John Wayne twang when voicing Quinn. I was anticipating Quinn to utter the phase ???...but, Pilgrim, you caused a lot of trouble this morning; might have got somebody killed; and somebody oughta belt you in the mouth. But I won???t. I won???t. The hell I won???t!??? ??? McLintock (1963)
It is quite irritating. So much so, that this is the first review I have written. In and of itself not notable, but I have over 200 titles in my library. The only other time I was this disappointed in a narrator switch is when John Lee read George R R Martin???s "A Feast for Crows." I am happy to see Roy Dotrice is narrating Martin???s "A Dance with Dragons" and I am equally happy to see Scott Brick is back for Battles??? "Shadow of Betrayal."
"The Deceived" is a good book, but it may be worth buying at B&N and reading in lieu of spending 11 hours listening to Dufris.
