Unlikeable characters and bad narration.

I agree with Susan about the narrator. Reminded me why I rarely download fiction. The various accents were terrible.

The actual story was a huge disappointment as I enjoyed Labyrinth. The story felt forced, the varying parts did not gel well together. The most interesting aspects were explained away and there were many questions unanswered.

My main problem was with the characters (I do think that I would have felt less strongly about this if I has read the print version or it was narrated differently). I have never wished for characters to die horrible deaths so badly. They were inconsistant and irritating. To say Meridith or Leone are one dimentional would be too kind (and the terrible accents.)

Very dissappointing.

Wince Making

Intriguing story spoiled by the narration. The narrators voice did not in my opinion suit the tale at all indeed I found her voice made me wince, 20hrs suffering. Such a shame.
