Audio Glitches

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I downloaded the high quality version and the recording has quite a few audio glitches. I missed about 10 minutes of the book in total from the various screeches and squeals that make this sound like I'm listening on a radio and went out of range.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance fills a bit over the top. I'm sure it is well suited for a live theater performance but this book could really benefit from being recorded specifically for the audio book environment.

Was Make and Break worth the listening time?

Yes and no, I found the story mildly entertaining but it didn't really draw me in. The audio glitches were very distracting.

Any additional comments?

Going to use the audible guarantee on this one, wasn't worth purchasing.

Mildly entertaining but forgettable

Any additional comments?

Not one of Frayn's best. Although he is known for his plays I prefer his novels. Here, the best thing was the performance but even that scored only 4 stars for me because it felt too much like a recording of a live theatre performance. The audience response was distracting and at times I felt that there was action on the stage that I was missing.
