Disappointing is far too mild a word to describe this audiobook. The narration was dreadful - the reader almost shouting most of the time and the female voices being delivered in a peculiar breathy way.
As for the content - bitterly disappointing! Part ghost story and part love story was the description, but this book was neither. I could not believe it would not get better, but even 5 minutes from the end I was hoping it would fulfil the description.
Seems I need consolation to recover from having wasted an audio credit on <i>Consolation </i>

This book was a great disappointment. From the description, it sounded very interesting but it was actually extremely dull. The main character was difficult, if not impossible, to empathise with. After a couple of hours of indifferent narrative and incredibly bad narration I had to give up on this one.
