Not bad

Having been a fan of this author's work for quite a while now, I decided to finally get the audiobook after receiving one of my free credits.

It was okay. Not bad, but exactly great either.

I think most of that comes down to the narrator. He's not very good, sometimes. His general narration is okay, but whenever he goes into a character's voice or imitating a sound, I have to force myself to continue listening. He gets incredibly grating at times. His accent's kinda strong, too.

I've got another audiobook from the same author. And while it's not his best, it's still quite good. It's just let down a little by the narrator. Like I said, though, he isn't terrible. Just not the best.

4/5
