I cannot believe this book even got published, let alone made into an audiobook. Is it me, or was this a blatant, yet altogether mediocre attempt at ..Show More »FSOG? With a bit of feeble tinkering to the storyline, it was a duplicate. With all the "he said", "I said", "she said", "I smiled", "he smiled", "I yelled", "he yelled", "I asked", "he asked" - what the?

Not adding to the experience, let's talk about the narrators. They only got a "1" because I couldn't give them a "0". "Ian" was particularly stagnant, monotone and unconvincing. He sounded like a preschooler doing the christmas play narration. I will DEFINITELY steer clear of any books narrated by both of these narrators in the future.
