...And they say waterboarding is torture!!!
I agree with William-Don't Buy
In William's review he said that it would have been less expensive for him if he hadn't purchased this book. He was so correct and I didn't listen the first time as a result this hurt more because I was burned twice. Buy almost anything else, but don't buy from this narrator or author. My grandson has a better grasp on the creation of storylines and he is just learning the process of how to create a storyline. The narrator needs help and a lot of it--very mo-no-t o n e and dry sounding.
No, just the author and the narrator
Never, He doesn't reflect anything in his performance other than reading the words, let alone emotions. He just reads one word after another. I do believe the narrator can make or break the listening enjoyment of a book. In this case. he broke both books but it wasn't hard to do because the story was already fractured.
All of them.
This was awful and I have never complained before.
