Great story and narrator, crappy production

The story was intriguing and kept me listening. Molly king was able to create distinctions between the characters, but production sucked. One could constantly hear paper rustling which was distracting. At times it appeared that editing screwed up because a mistake might be made, it was noticed, and instead of editing it out, they had clips of it in. There was a moment I thought there was something wrong with the audio file because it repeated the same sentence several times... and it did not appear to be part of the writing technique. Those flaws made it distracting, and it was disappointing because it seems like a mature mistakes.

Good Story Uneven Narration

This audiobook has a little bit of everything, part horror and science fiction, with a dab of mystery added in. I liked the premise of the story more than the actual follow through and I’m not sure why. Trying to put my finger on the problem has been difficult. I found the story engaging at times and then it seemed to drift. I think it has more to do with the narrator than the writing.

Molly King narrates this fully voiced production. I found some of her character voices jarring and an uncomfortable listen. Other characters were voiced quite well and there’s no doubt Molly has talent. Perhaps it’s a case of trying too hard to differentiate the characters, I just prefer a more subtle distinction.

I am curious to see where this story goes, but I think I’ll read the book next go round.

This audiobook was gifted to me in exchange for an unbiased review!
