Hyper dramatic reading by the narrator made it difficult for me to engage with this story. Particularly the voices of the female characters from the shouty teenager to the portrayal of the wife as an endlessly angry person.

This is the second audible book I’ve listened to where the hyper dramatic voices detract from the narration. I think I may be cancelling audible if the next book I have is like this.

Great story an annoying narrator

The book has a great story. I felt the voice for August was extremely annoying and detracted from the story. I would have stopped listening if I didn't need to hear it.

The speech about kindness is a stand out element of the book.
