Fun book with 2 parallel stories unfolding via alternating book parts. Really nice idea. Neither narrater really impressed me but the male narrator was fairly solid throughout. He kept it fairly simple and was very clearly spoken if not a little bland at times. However, the narrator for the female story, although trying to put heart into it, changing up the accents and tones, fell a bit short of the mark. For example on occasions not switching the her accent back to the correct one in time for that characters line. Also at times an accent would slide around like she forgot what she was aiming for. This was at times a bit cringy and took away from the immersion. I don't want to seem cruel but this is what the review system is for. Hopefully in the sequels she improves through practice. To give her credit she was extremely clear and the volume level was very even throughout, which unfortunately cannot be said for all audiobooks. I thought about returning the book over these issues but decided the authors story alone was worth the asking price.
