Good Story

Where does Sandstone and Mirrors rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the middle. It did not make me want to listen until the end in one setting but it did make me want to listen until the end.

Not sure

I liked her performance of all of the characters.

No


Any additional comments?

I loved the way her reactions were presented as well as the action scenes. The narrator was good and brought the story to life. I got this book via audiobook boom. Sometimes the narrator can make a so-so story a really good one. I think the story and narrator complimented each other.

Room for improvement... both the story & narration

This book was not for me. I felt there was room for improvement in the writing. The story seemed to be okay, but the characters names were used too often where pronouns would have sufficed. So while the story felt okay, it was distracting and repetitive hearing "Carli this and then Carli that". Then, the story was paired with a narrator who was much too young to be a 50 year old character. I think with practice she will become a good narrator, but for this story, she felt very flat/monotone and left the story dry. Character voices were not emphasized and emotions were not felt. Actions felt empty, even during tense scenes. Lastly, the editing was... odd. It was almost rushed or forced to fit in a certain amount of time. The sentences were clipped in the way that it almost felt some sentences were overlapped. I don't think words were left out, but it felt like there was NO break between the end of one sentence and the beginning of the next. It happened frequently, so it was distracting and unpleasant. All that said... while I did not love this story, I did not hate it it either because I do see potential in both author and narrator.
