This is a fascinating book, but the reading is truly awful. Had the reading been better, I'd have given the book a higher rating. The author (who is also the reader) mispronounces words; the fact that she can't pronounce "Antarctica", a very central word in the text, is very scary - especially since she lived there! In addition, she sounds like she doesn't understand what she's reading - she often pauses in the wrong place in sentences. The listener often has to figure out what she SHOULD have said. Since she wrote the thing, it must just be that she is a bad reader. Or perhaps it really was the ghost writer who wrote it? That might explain why she read as if she didn't understand the text. I recommend this book highly, but only in print form. The reading is so bad that it detracts greatly from the experience. I do understand the appeal of hearing the author, especially in such a personal book, but in this case the publisher made a big mistake in not hiring a professional reader.

Great story but the narrator lacked experience in story telling, sounded as if she was reading a script and often stumbling over words. That said its still worth the read.
