Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I bought this forgetting that I had already read it. I liked the book and the twists in the mystery. However, this narrator nearly ruined the story. He reads very choppy and flat with no emotion. I'm shocked that this audio book was released with him reading it. It was actually painful to listen to. I paid $1.99 and that was too much. The story is good - READ the book.
What did you like best about this story?
Since the book was ruined by the narration, I would have to go back and READ the book to remember what I liked best. But probably the mystery part of the book is better and more believable than the romance.
What didn’t you like about Jacob Aaron Miller’s performance?
Choppy, flat, unemotional. Reads like someone who is not used to reading aloud. Not good qualities for an audio book.

The story might actually be better than I've rated. The problem with an audible version is that if the narrator doesn't have the right voice, tone, cadence, etc., it's difficult to separate that from the story. I had to put the speed up to 1.25x just to be able to get beyond the mechanical, computer-like reading.
