Great story, underwhelming performance

Would recommend to anyone. The narration makes the protagonist seem whiny where I had envisioned him originally as a young teenage boy who was more mature for his age because of his past, this can often ruin the imagery of his dialogue where i felt originally he was more sarcastic and dismissive in comparison to the performance's constant over dramatic brattiness.
Still good though, would recommend reading for yourself for a more immersive experience, the voice performance was still very well done.
