Flat ending spoils story, bad narration
The story is quite engaging, even with the usual slew of implausibilities and contradictions thrown in, but the ending leaves this listener, once again, thinking "is that it?". These stories usually have good pace but, for me, the inconsistencies get in the way and the endings are strangely unfulfilling. As always, Reichlin's narration is dreadful. Terrible regional accents and stiff, unnatural delivery. Surely there's someone out there who could do better than this.
