I have listened to three chapters of this drivel and wish I could delete it completely. It is impossible to suspend. reality and enter into this story it is so cluky with unlikely coincidence s.
The Mummifers Daughter, This was a fun book to listen to, nothing heavy to clog up your mind. I did find that the narrator must be a fan of speed reading, he rushes through the story like he had another place to be that was more important. Overall, still enjoyable.
