How to ruin a great book. This guy has no understanding of how to read this book. The previous narrators had a subtlety and skill, this narrator makes a mockery of the book. Incredibly disappointing, after eagerly looking forward to it. I'm returning my copy and hoping at some stage they re-think their decision. Can I encourage you to do the same?

Given the amount of 5 star reviews I was expecting a gripping entertainment. For me it was as exciting as a Sunday in Bridlington in December in the fog. Unlike the five star people I found the narration ponderous and ailenating. The writing was thin and unbelievable. A strange hybrid of the early 1950s with a smattering of Iphone Apps. Agent 003.5 Licenced to bore.

Because i loved Child 44 so much I bought this without listening to the reader. I found him too slow and his style of reading broke my attention away from the book. So make sure you are ok with the narration before you buy.
