Good Story, Poor Narration

What made the experience of listening to The Birthday Girl the most enjoyable?

Good story line, pace kept moving along, believable characters.

What did you like best about this story?

The building up to Mersia ( the main character in the story) telling about her past.

How could the performance have been better?

The Narrator tried to put on voices for the characters and failed miserably. He clearly has no idea what a 15 year old girls sounds like and the italian and russian accents he attempts are just awful and seem to fade out within the same sentence.

Any additional comments?

If you can put up with the Narrator, this is a good story.

Unusual story line

An unusual story line. Fairly fast paced and quite exciting. The ending I found a little implausible
