A great narrator can elevate a bad book...

...a bad or mediocre narrator can't do a thing for a bad or mediocre book.

I don’t often fail to finish a book, but this is definitely one of those that I could not finish.

The story itself is one we’ve seen before. It can be done well, but it doesn’t quite get there for me. The FMC consistently asks the MMC “Why?” and then tells him that he doesn’t answer her questions. It’s done so much so that it’s a thing. The FMC also asserts often how she is an adult and not a child, but it’s hard to tell that from the book. Yes, she has a good job, but it doesn’t feel like she’s earned it.

My dissatisfaction came from the narrator. She was just the wrong person for this book. Right away you hear how crisp her Ts are. Enunciation is grand if you’re doing Shakespeare, but if you’re reading dialogue coming out of a 23-year-old’s mouth, it doesn’t fit. So she's got an old lady's voice with a young person's words, and she still can't resolve in the middle to be a convincing 23-year-old.

This narrator was also not good at making the different character voices sound different. That doesn't always have to be there for an interesting audiobook, but when other things are failing this is just another "sin."

After about 3 hours into the audio, I had to stop. I was going to try to finish because I did pay for this title and I try to get my money's worth... but I couldn't do it. There are other books I have ready to go that I am sure will be more worthy of my time.
