This review primarily focuses on the audiobook, which is a DNF from me.
There are two huge issues with this book for me. The first is the lesser of the 2. The stories are all SUPER short. I enjoyed the first one, despite how predictable it was. The rest have just been forgettable at best.
The biggest issue by far is the narrator and his obnoxious, ever-present background hissing. He reads every line in the same lifeless, soul-sucking, monotone, boring-as-shit voice that puts me to sleep. Up until now, I’ve tolerated it, because he does decent character voices. As I said in my post “Finding quality audio narrators“, most narrators are either good at doing character voices, or scene narration. But his character voices aren’t anything special either. At best, they’re a respite from his lifeless narration. He puts the same amount of enthusiasm into a character mid-battle as he does a character taking a leisurely stroll walking down the path.
