Great

I read the book on my kindle. Then downloaded audible for my son who is registered blind and loves audio books. Decided to listen to this story. I’m on book about 13 and it’s good to recap as to where it all started. The narration is good. And I’ve not downloaded book two as loved the audio so much.

Narration Terrible!

The story line was weak but the narrator couldn’t pronounce some words properly and it annoyed me! It was just about listenable - I gave it a chance. I will not be looking for more books by this author.
