I felt I had to review this Audible title because although the story was reasonable enough it was ruined for me by the absolutely dreadful narration. The narrator has a perfectly pleasant voice, very much in keeping with how I imagine the main character may sound but the fluency was shocking. Sadly it continued to deteriorate throughout the novel. Very often lines would be cut short and the narrator would then realise there were still another few words to go and would tag them on as an afterthought, which changed the whole emphasis in a most distracting manner. Many words were also mispronounced, I have never heard of the coin 'a florin' called a "floorin" before. This was one of many errors. It served to distract so thoroughly from the story that I'm unsure if the plot line was actually any good!
Maybe I'm in a minority having this view, as I see the follow on novel has the same narrator. I certainly won't be listening to it.
