Decent story, terrible narration

I feel like I would’ve liked this book if I had read it in print. Unfortunately, the narrator‘s character voices were annoying and the accents were atrocious. Both her American and Italian accent would be laughable if they weren’t so hard to listen to. They were studies in stereotypes and forced acting. The cherry on top was being forced to listen to her moist, bubbly saliva sounds. Saliva should not be audible.

Narrator is not cut out for this, sorry!

Definitely different for me. Enjoyed it. Growing up in a different culture, I took issue with one of the character's sense of values. I'm sorry to say, she got what was coming to her. It was Lady Karma.

Intriguing

I kept listening as I wanted to know the outcome but it was quite predicable.
