I really wish I had bought this for my Kindle rather than as an audiobook. Susan Duerden's narration is terrible.
In the past I've generally enjoyed or at least tolerated the quirks of narrators who have come in for criticism, but not in this case. It took me three attempts to finally convince myself that I could cope with listening to Ms Duerden, but her inflection is incredibly irritating and it's only because I wanted to hear the story that I have persisted, I will certainly not buying any more audiobooks with her as the narrator.

What would have made The Invisible Library better?
I couldn't even get into this book because the narrator was so terrible. Her sentences have a sing-song quality that is distracting, and her acting is just awful. It's too bad because it seems like a good book, based on the reviews.
