And the winner for Worst Narration goes to...
It was a stretch for me to give this three stars, because the narration was so amazingly terrible, I had to bail at 30 mins in, and that's only because I was driving and couldn't stop it sooner. Zero (0) stars for the reading, potentially 3 or 4 stars for the story, if I could have stuck it out. Some of the wording seemed awkward, but it could easily have been the fault of the narrator.
Oh dear Zeus, that narrator? Wow. And here I mean the kind of "wow" a wife gives her husband, when he's just done something so amazingly idiotic, she can only stare, cringe and give an amazed smile.
The narrator sounded like a deliberately cheesy and over-eager frat guy who was given a script and told he must enunciate every...single...word, regardless of its import.
You know how when you're in sales, you're told to smile even when on the phone because people can "hear" the smile? Well, I could "hear" his smile, and that perma-smirk was completely inappropriate for this story.
A word of caution if you're contemplating the Audible version: Bad acting is just as apparent in narration as it is in a film or play. If you need evidence, listen to this book. If you are curious and enjoy zombie action, pick up the eBook version. It's a steal right now at 99 cents.
