Slow and Boring
Very hard to hear the voices of the narrators over the cheap music that never stops. One of the narrators, Joe, had one of the most annoying voices I’ve ever heard and ruins it completely for me. There’s very little detail about events narrated, and it’s very general and vague. Would never recommend this book series. I didn’t even finish it because I was just too annoyed.
