    "Narrator changes after chapter two"

    For some reason, after the second chapter, the narrator changes. It is not clear why.

    "Still good. But what's going on with the voice"

    Street was still good, but the narrator's voice started being wonky. Maybe trying to switch readers mid stream?

    "Performance"

    I wanted to give the performance a 5th star because Travis Gilbert always does a wonderful job! However after the 2nd chapter in school of hard knocks the voices we'd come to know and be familiar with were pitched down. It was very disorienting and made the characters feel older and hard to distinguish one from another. There were a few times where I had to ask myself if it was Emily or Lady barb speaking.

    "Great story, great narration, but..."

    As always, Christopher Nuttall spins a wonderful tale, and the performance of the narrator was first rate. There's just one little thing. on Chapter 2 or 3, the narrator's voice was pitched down, I suspect during the edit of the book. It remained so until the preview of the next book in the series, then pitched down again for the final closing.

    "Series good, this book I could not even finish."
    Would you try another book from Christopher G. Nuttall and/or Tavia Gilbert?

    Yes because all his other books have been good, however this one is not good at all. Returning.


    Has The School of Hard Knocks turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Boring story line, Tavia seemed to have a hard time with this book. I could not finish it.

    "Disappointed in the authors voice choice changes."

    Why go back and forth with Tavi and another voice actor? Chapter 2 is when it starts and throughout the other chapters it switches back and forth. The voice actor wasnt bad but it made things confusing.

    The series is worth listening to but I hope the other books in the series are worthy of my credits.

    Great performance of characters and another brilliant adventure with Emily.
    Fans of the series shouldn't be disappointed with this new instalment. It's not as high octane as previous but it gives so many hints for where the story will lead in the future. 😃

    "The series is addictive"

    There are so many genres and themes involved either by accident or design in this series it's hard not to like the stories. So much so that I am now eagerly awaiting my next "fix". Getting more enjoyable as the series progresses.
