    Narration very poor spoke slowly very irritating. Horrible attempts at accents shame because the story was interesting wouldn't recommend this purely because of the narration !!!

  • LAURA MANVILLE

    Narrator spoke too slow, placed emphasis on the wrong words, and was dreary to listen to.

  • Michele Newcomer

    Excellent!!! Suspenseful! I greatly enjoyed the subject matter, something different for a change.
