"Good, but not great.........."
The story was ok, but the portrayal of Frank was awful, the voice was irritating and the constant third person references were tedious. Didn't enjoy this one as much as the others, think there are too many characters and parallel stories going on. Joanna Tope is usually good at these, but several voices in this were just full on ham and eventually distractingly annoying. Overall disappointed.
"Irritating OTT accents"
I so wanted to like this but ended up having to force myself to complete this audiobook.
It's set in Whitby, I'm from the north and was pleased to get northern based tale.
The problem for me was the exaggerated accents, laborious and often excruciating. I love our northern accents but this was painful. When the narrator wasn't doing an attempt at the accent it was fine.
It distracted from the story which wasn't actually bad.
The book was a disappointment. I won't be reading any others in the series.
Not my cup of tea at all but felt I had to endure until the end. Wish I hadn't. The story and the voices.........aaargh.......frightful!
If it had been an entertaining story.
Everything, annoying, frustrating and awful.
The accents and the voices are very unbelievable and annoying.
All but maybe the first few chapters.
I have been a member since 2011 and rarely give reviews but I felt I had to as this one was easily the worst I have listened to.
