Reviews (Rated: 4 Stars - 7 reviews)

Reviewer: - May 9, 2016
Subject: Poor Narration
Chapter 16 should be read by anyone else. It was like nails on a chalkboard.

Subject: Bad readers
Chapter 16 - the woman reading this chapter is ridiculous. She should not read aloud to any one. It ruins the book.

Loved it. Some excellent readers, some not. Short book though. I would recommend this book.
Reviewer: - September 28, 2015
Probably a great book, but I gave up halfway through ch.3 as reader faded away at the end of sentences which was really frustrating.

Subject: Some poor reading
Great story. Unfortunately, Chapters 16, 17 & 22 are very muffled and garbled. This made it very difficult to follow.
