Distracting Narrator

I'm kind of mad about this one. The stories themselves are very compelling, varied, and imaginative. The narration, however, sucks. there is little differentiation between the characters during dialogue making it difficult to tell who is who. The dramatic deadpan never varies and becomes tiresome. I cannot finish this book. I do plan on reading it myself though.

depressing drivel no way to get a refund?

wish I could only pay for the first 20 minutes because I couldn't get pay that. This starts out with a history of writers I never heard of and moves into a very depressing novel of death and suicide. I'm done.
