Any additional comments?

This book desperately needed a good editor, and a good narrator. The text was scattered with mis-used words and appalling mispronunciations. (arthuritis!). The narrator chose to use cheeping, little girly voices which grated on the nerves. All attempts at regional accents were laughable. I gave up half way through - not really having any interest in what happened to the protagonists.
The story might have been passable with a different writer and different narrator.

An entertaining story but spoilt by basic writing style and poor standard of narration. Both became grating after a while and I abandoned the book about 30% into it.
