This review is from: Between the Assassinations (Audio CD)
I bought this audiobook to keep my mind occupied on my long comute to work. Terrible mistake! The story is low in interest as the author, Aravind Adiga keeps making the same points over and over again. Maybe he found his writing so boring he kept forgetting what he was talking about? I believe my dog can write better stories.
On top^of this and as if the incredible lack of writing talent wasn't enough Kerry Schale's voice acting is purely atrocious. Every characters sound the same. There's no room for subtle emotion acting at all. If one could die of boredom Kerry Schale would be the cause.
I felt terribly sorry not being mentally able to listen to the rest of Aravind Adiga's social and economic vision of an imaginary town in the 80's, between the assassinations of Indira Ghandi and Rajiv. The idea is great in itself. But the result is appalling. Poor. Terrible. Flat. Lifeless. Avoid if you can.
