Just can't get into it

I can't follow the story. Tried listening on two separate occasions and just can't pay attention. I'm not sure why.

The narration is so strange and over done. Makes it feel like it's a children's book. Maybe it is and I missed that on the description.

After two chapters, I don't even know what this book is about. I have no idea what time frame it supposedly takes place. Overall, I simply do not look forward to listening to this story each morning.

Abandoned the book. Perhaps it gets better as it goes, but I'm not willing to stick it out to find out.

7 Narrators, But That's Not a Good Thing

This isn't a dramatization of the novel -- it's a good novel narrated by different characters whose names lead the chapter (think of George R. R. Martin's books). Each narrator reads the whole chapter, and therein lies the issue: there are multiple different versions of every character's speaking voice. Multiply each by the number of different narrators who interpret that character and it gets a bit muddy. It's certainly distracting, and the story arc is developed in a way that there is very little backstory to explain what's going on until you're about 1/3 of the way into the book.

That being said, after spending a few hours immersed in it, you get used to it, even if it grates. The individual performances are fine... but collectively, it's a bit much.

Still, I enjoyed the depth of the characters once I got there, and by the end of the book, I was deeply invested in the storyline and cared about the core group. I'm going to get the second book in the series for this reason. However, I think the book would have been improved in its audio version by choosing a single talented narrator and sticking with him/her. Any one of the 7 actors who worked on this book could have delivered the story with clarity and consistency and I think it would have benefited from it.
