Review for audiobook version only.
on 7 September 2014
This review is for the audiobook version.
I have listened to many audiobooks in my van, mostly zombies books but as much as I wanted to enjoy this story I just couldn't, I had had enough after half an hour. The reason for this is the style of the narrator, he reads it so fast it sounds as if he is trying to get through it as quickly as possible (like when I read my wee boy a story at bedtime during half time of the football) e.g. during a scene in a jail cell, Tourettes Boy gets mentioned three or four times in a minute but each time it's pronounced 'churtsboy' (say it fast and you'll get the idea of how the rest of the narrative goes) Also there is no distinction between characters voices, when characters are having a conversation it isn't clear who is talking as there is no change in tone or accent.
Like I say this isn't a review of the book itself, I will probably buy it for Kindle as it did seem promising but seeing as audiobooks aren't exactly cheap I would recommend you save your cash for something else
