An audiobook needs both a great author and the right narrator. The narrator let this one down. His intonation doesn't match the text and the dulcet tones of the characters are often indiscernible. I put an end to the torment in chapter three. I love this author but this is one book I am happy to skip! it's a shame though...the story line intrigued me. And why, oh why change narrators throughout a series?!
