I really enjoyed the story. I had previously listened to Book 2 before Book 1. Didn’t really make a difference. Leslie did a great job with the story and the characters. I didn’t really care for the narrator. He rushes his words and then stops. Very disturbing. I sped up the pace of the audio, just to get through it. While doing that, I wasn’t really able to concentrate on the story as well as I wished I could have. Oh well, I will just have to add him to my list of narrators not to listen to. He wasn’t as bad as some. I can listen to him, if I have to. Some I can’t even listen to. Some others make my stomach ache. Still, Leslie North is a very talented writer.
