love this book, the narration is putting me to zzz

Seriously what a bad narration to a good book. I was losing my patience with the narration.

interesting story, bad voice

it was a great story to listen, however the voice was too weird. almost made me drop the book several times. she reads ALL sentences in a rising a falling curve. regardless of the meaning or story. dialogues are a bit better, but general descriptions are very painful. hope the narrator will grow for the next book.

Did they ever watch a episode of x files?

The whole book Scully is a psychic who believes it all without question? Then at the very end decides nah I’ll be skeptical. I get trying do something original but that’s not the character at all. How could this book have gone so poorly while the Mulder book was so great.

Good story, tiresome narration

The narrator has an annoying repeating cadence and rythm, as if she only has one ways of delivering sentences, after a few pages you can predict how shes going to weigh each word and i dont get immersed as much as i did in the first book in this series.

Other than that, good stuff.

Fun listen

I found it very entertaining and it was narrated very well! However, I did think the storyline was rather predictable.

Great book, not so great narration

I saw on the reviews most people said the same thing, I was able to get through the book with no problem, but Emma’s voice is not the right fit.

Thats it?

It starts a bit slow but then its a fast paced race to the end. Then we get left with basically a cliffhanger. Lets hope for a few more in the series!

A Bit Too Out of Character

I honestly couldn’t finish this book. Dana Scully doesn’t seem anything like her character we meet several years later. Yes, I know people grow up and change, but honestly this sounds more like a bad fanfic than a compelling prequel to the series.
The narration didn’t help. Flat and dull best describe it.
