terrible narration

This was a good story which was totally ruined by the narrator. The narration was so awful I couldn't listen to it; I had to read it instead

Good story shame about the narration

Would you try another book written by Damien Boyd or narrated by Napoleon Ryan?

My first Damien Boyd novel and I would certainly try another, but it would have to be a paperback or Kindle version if the audio narration was by Napoleon Ryan. Whilst general narration was fine, characterisations, particularly those of the male characters was dreadful. They all sounded like middle class characters from a 1950's B Movie, all of whom smoked 20 a day along with half a bottle of scotch, and were all totally one dimensional. The female characters were better, but mostly sounded the same, and as for Nixon possibly the deepest voice I have ever heard was used. All in all I was disappointed as the plotline sounded intriguing, the hardcopy reviews very positive and I was looking forward to listening to the book. Not sure if I can finish listening!
