Painfully slow narration
Five-star book; the rating is for the reading alone. The narration is very clear but the reader takes odd pauses and generally reads very slowly. I found myself listening at 2x speed and it was OK. I wish there were a 1.5x speed option because sometimes that felt too speedy.
this is a dark book but it kept me hooked through a long drive. some of the russian names are long but i found the narration clear and easy to listen to! was great! highly recommended.
The book is a gripping tale of morality but the narration is dull and sleep inducing . Great for insomniacs and a perfect gift for your sworn enemy . Lull your nemesis into eternal slumber with the monotone narration then pounce .
