mismatch of story and reader

I enjoy adventure stories every once in a while and I had been looking forward to this one on the basis of the audible recording of the previous Star Trek movie tie-in narrated by Zachary Quinto. Unfortunately I did not notice the change of narrator and did not listen to the audio sample before purchasing the book.
Whilst I am sure Alice Eve is a very good reader for other types of books, I found her to be completely mismatched with this style of story. The first hour was a real struggle. It felt like being read to by my teacher in junior school and I kept expecting to be asked to spell a complicated word at the end of each sentence. As i found my way into the story, I became more willing to put up with her stye of reading, but it remained irritating right to the end.
The story as a whole is enjoyable. But again the reader's interpretation detracts from the various, despite listening to it once, I will delete it from my library.
So in short: worthwhile for the story line but hard work to listen to.
I would be very interested to hear how other listeners felt.

Brilliant

This was a thoroughly enjoyable audiobook. I agree with other reviewers that there is a slight narrator mismatch but she does improve steadily after the first few minutes so don't let it put you off.
