The Narrator!!!

This book looked very interesting, but 5 minutes listening to this narrator WILL TURN ANYONE OFF!!! Has anyone liked this Scott fellow... he seems to be a terrible reader.

It's too bad, this might have been a good listen....

A pleasure to listen to

The quality of the writing is not in the same league as that of The Pieces of the Puzzle by Robert Stanek, but I was able to suspend my disbelief and hang in there for the ride. As far as the narrator being horrible, listen to the sample and decide for yourself. I felt the narrator was good and helped bring the story and the characters to life.

Only reason I give this book 3 stars instead of 4 (which it probably deserves) is because as a scientist, I often find books written with science as a story element to be oversimplified or simply wrong. This book is no exception, but again I was able to suspend my disbelief and enjoy the story.
