Great story, disappointing audio

Really enjoyed this book - well rounded characters & a great tale but I was so disappointed with the audio recording :(
the reading was poorly paced (extremely fast, I could barely keep up; I tried slowing it down using the speed feature but it sounded worse) with hit-or-miss emphasis/pronunciation and no rhythm of dialogue.
If I wasn’t enjoying the book so much I would’ve returned it due to the recording.

Good story ruined by the narration

Enjoyed the overall story but narration was terrible it was rushed sounded like it was done on a lunch break Would have returned it but don't think audible would have let me.

Excellent story

Excellent story with a surprising ending. Narration on the audiobook was poor with even occasions of tripping over words and no variation in tone.
