This review covers the audiobook only. This is an unfortunate DNF from me. The narrator is just awful. Every single line is spoken in the same dull, lifeless voice that could put an insomniac to sleep. It’s difficult to focus on the story with this narrator putting me to sleep. On top of being dreadfully boring, I’ve never been able to stand narrators who either mispronounce words or in this case, can’t tell the difference between O and 0. That leads to confusion and issues in more than one instance.
As for the content of the story, from what little I was able to tolerate, it seemed like it might be an interesting memoir. It’s difficult to say, as I made it 7 chapters in on my first listen and the prospect of suffering through more of this awful narration fills me with dread. One issue I take with the content of the story is the use of the word “silenced” when referring to firearms. You can’t silence a gun, they’re suppressors, not silencers.
