Never let an author be narrator
I've no idea whether this story is any good or the characters interesting because I couldn't put up with more than 10 minutes reading. William Sutton has a pleasant voice but there's a reason they usually employ actors to do the narration. If I'd realised it was author-read, I'd have avoided it.
