Why change the reader!!! Simon Peebles is the best of the best! So why is the author reading this. He's a writer not an actor and so does not give the same performance. Plus the sound quality is base heavy like he is in a broom cupboard. Was this done on the cheep. Sad because the story is interesting and I was looking forward to this. Shame !!!

Would you try another book written by Charlie Fletcher or narrated by Charlie Fletcher?
Written by, yes. Narrated by, definitely not!
What did you like best about this story?
I can't really say as I kept tuning out?
What didn’t you like about Charlie Fletcher’s performance?
Bland and emotionless. My suggestion would be to stick to the writing and pay for a good narrator?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Paradox?
Any additional comments?
Why-of-why change the narrator? I very much enjoyed ‘The Oversight’ and I’m pretty sure I would have enjoyed this one too, except I found myself not listen to the story? The previous narrator’s voice was both engaging and compelling whereas the author’s voice is bland and emotionless – bordering on soporific? I kept finding myself tuning out and missing large parts of the story. I gave up after rewinding the same part of story twice and still missing it! I am however tempted to buy the Kindle version so I can mentally substitute Mr Fletcher’s voice for that of Simon Prebble?

My version had numerous repeated, duplicated or re-read sentences. Please clean it up and reissue.

Would you try another book from Charlie Fletcher and/or Charlie Fletcher?
No, sadly I fear I would not.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The story was fine, the problem is in the telling of it.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Charlie Fletcher?
Ideally, Simon Prebble, but in a pinch another actual professional would do.
Any additional comments?
Mr. Fletcher, was there honestly no one able to talk you out of this monumentally poor decision? The acting was poor, the characterizations inconsistent, and the production quality laughable (were you recording from within a tin can, perhaps?) - all things which detract from and impede ones enjoyment of the story itself, and could also have easily been avoided. One can only hope that someone comes to their senses and this story is re-recorded - at which point it may be tolerable. At *this* point, sadly, it is not.
