This book was difficult to follow because of the rapid-fire narration. Mr. Jackson barely took a breath.
I could not grasp the different characters nor transition easily during changes of scene, so I stopped listening at about an hour into the book.
I will try to pick it up again sometime in the next month because I hate to waste credits and the book itself may turn out to be good.
I long for James Marsters.

I don't know how I would rate this book for story content, as I couldn't get past the first two chapters, due to the terrible narration. It could be a good book for all I know. The narrator, Gildart Jackson, who might be good in non-American accented stories, was awful. He made the lead female character, who was from Florida, sound like a South Bronx man with a speech impediment (no offense to a normal Bronx accent). Made it unbearable to listen. The other characters were badly accented as well. Did anyone at Audible listen to this book before putting it on site for purchase? If so, shame on you. If not, shame on you. Most books I've purchase from Audible have been fine, with good narration, this being the huge exception.
