Horrible accents warp book

The book is a good, very original story, but the narrator's southern accents are so bad that it warps the entire book. They are hard to understand and make the southern characters all sound like stroke victims. It divides the characters into normal people and bizarrely slurring morons. I live in Mississippi and I can assure you that people don't talk like this.

It really detracts from what could have been a very enjoyable listen. The story revolves around a scientific controversy with many repercussions, and I found it unique and compelling in a genre full of cookie-cutter bad guys compelled by similar motives.

Ruined by the narration.

An interesting, if a little convoluted tale which was unfortunately dominated by the unbelievably appalling attempt by the narrator to sound like a woman, a reasonably young woman of intelligence and inventiveness.....this narator turned her into an ancient and very sick crone! Ruined the book, utterly!
