Thank goodness for the Audible returns policy
on 23 October 2013
The only reason I managed to survive for the first 28 minutes of this book was because I was driving and decided to give it until I got home. I could imagine the "narrator" running his finger along under the words as he read, and every time he got to the end of a piece of speech he paused...before continuing "...I warned" or even "...he deadpanned, marching through the room.." His delivery is so flat, I had trouble following his sentences. And here I have to allocate some of the blame to the author, who clearly enjoys creative writing - "Tilting my head back, I looked up at where I assumed the sky still hung behind the black ceiling". I had to look the book up on Amazon Look Inside just to see if Chapter 1 is as bad as it seemed. It is.
So thank you to Audible for giving me a refund; I have another chance to find a book worth listening to.
