This is yet another hard DNF from me. If you’ve read any number of my audiobook reviews, you know I can’t stand bad narrators. The only thing I hate more is pisspoor author narrations.

This narration is so dull and lifeless, it’s sucking the life out of me, as well as my will to live or continue. Every single line is read in this same dull, lifeless, listless, boring, monotonous tone of voice.

Here’s a setting; A warlord just conquered a city and has to prove himself by conquering the former lord’s woman, but she’s a fighter and she isn’t going to go easy. So then tell me, why does she sound bored? Why is it when she says she’s not going to be conquered without a fight, she sounds like she’s got other shit to do and this needs to hurry up? The author/narrator sounds as bored as I feel like having to listen to this.
