Ruined by the reader

This is a terrific book, "factual fiction", a gripping story well told, if a little long. However, the whole experience was ruined for me by the absolutely awful reader, who seems unable to complete even the shortest sentence without drawing a new breath between two or three words. She sounds as if she's running a 10K race while reading the book. If I had the time, I would re-read the book in hard copy just to get this dreadful voice out of my mind.

Felt removed from the main. Characters

It felt distant to me. And the audio book too long. Fairly good story but the protagonist was 40 not 18. Controlled by her grandmother It had the potential to be better but I do appreciate the fact that it didn’t use profanity or linger on sexual issues. May give this writer another try

Great read

Only negative is the performance was screechy at times throughout. Almost too dramatic and was distractive. But overall highly recommend.
