Pentially quite a moving story. Not a good narrator has a dislikeable strange tone. Have only read this one, not sure if I'd try again. Essentially about 10 chapters too long, very repetitive and at times frustrating because it's hashing and rambling on the same subject. Not a book I'd ever revisit.

The story was great!
I loved the ability of the characters to use music as metaphors. Jazz is an amazing source of story and emotion.
Character voice consistency is so very important to audio adaptation of a stories words. Jac, dad, Hannah, etc. were all consistent. Liz went from high or alto to basso when she was away from Jac, almost like listening to Jac speaking Liz's parts. For that matter, opposite female voices sounded like Jac or one of the males. It was distracting. Otherwise, I say again, it is a great story.

I loved this story. Good writing, good pacing. The narration was distracting, though. Jac sounded so robotic, I thought it was one of those computer generated voices. Still, I got used to it after a while. Toward the end of the book, however, the narrator missed the voice switch a few times and read another character's part in Jac's voice. The producer should have caught that and re-recorded that segment.
