I have given four stars for story, though I really can't be sure what it is worth. It's hard to judge a book when the narration is poor. In this case, almost the whole book is read in a croaky monotone. That seemed apt in the beginning when the main character was deeply depressed. But then completely at odds with the words being read later on. It is also pitched so low, apparently at the very bottom of the narrator's register, that there is even less scope for expression of voice. There is no apparent attempt to differentiate between the voices/accent of the two main characters - which makes it very confusing when they are the only two participants in much of the dialogue. The other characters, especially the few female characters, are given ludicrous voice/accent characteristics, that are so laughable that it is really distracting and removes any sense of realism in their characterisations.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Why in the hell would you start a book with a suicide?
Why does the narrator mispronounce the simplest words?
Has Godsend turned you off from other books in this genre?
Nope I love this genre but I will look twice to see who is the narrator
Would you be willing to try another one of Christopher Rain’s performances?
Any additional comments?
Whatever you do, don't start a flipping love story with a flipping suicide!!
