Extremely poor narration

The story was good until towards the end when it suddenly became rushed, as if the author had got bored of the whole thing and just wanted to finish it.

The narrator was extremely poor. She has a clear voice but her delivery and phrasing is very strange. She constantly hesitates and stumbles over words and frequently mispronounces words or says the wrong words - a couple of examples are ' the children were groaning up' (instead of growing up); referring to 'lits' instead of 'lists' and 'instant room' rather than 'incident room'. At one point she calls the main character 'Hannah' for a while instead of 'Anna'. The whole book is liberally peppered with these errors, at first I thought I had misheard them so I replayed to check then I gave up checking. It distracted a great deal from the story.

I can't believe that the producer/editor actually released this audio book with so many errors in it.
