Wonderfully Written, Though Audio felt off.

The audio was of good quality but the story seemed to be read like it was several different clips from different recording sessions. It felt very disjointed and in some places there were short pauses as if the reader hadn't read the story through once first before recording.

Now I am not a master when it comes to the art of Book reading for audio tapes, so for all I know recording several takes of one line then splicing them together may be normal, but it pulled away from the experience, the readers voice however was soothing and wonderful and I encourage the reader to please continue doing just that, Reading books for audio tape, because in time it will be perfect!

Over all a wonderfully written story (though not without its flaws) and a amazing voice to put this story into the Audio Book market! I would definitely purchase this if you like a short story for a walk or if your doing house work!

Great short story

This is a look inside of the mind of Mike, a patient in a mental institution. Mike was accused of murdering his family, although he says he is innocent. Mike becomes friends with a new patient William. It wasn't too hard to figure out who William was and his role in this story. Excellent narration by Pete Ferrand.
