THIS RATING AND REVIEW ARE FOR THE AUDIO EDITION I (TRIED TO) LISTEN(ED) TO ONLY. I WILL MAKE A FEW COMMENTS ABOUT THE BOOK BUT THE RATING IS ABOUT THIS AUDIO VERSION.
Some of you may know that Elizabeth Moon wrote one of my all time favorites series including a trilogy I think of as one novel. So I hate that I've never been able to like her space operas. I mean I've tried and the first in this series was pretty good but I just haven't been able to get involved.
HOWEVER I got the audio version of this book and I've got to say...the reader drove me completely away. I don't understand why publishers or whoever will contract a mediocre to poor reader to read a book. Do they never listen to their own product???
I mean the trilogy I mentioned above (That I like so well) is The Deed of Paksenarrion. I own them in both print and audio and the reader of those while not as bad as the reader of this book is still not what I'd call "up to it".
I just don't get it.
I mean the reader here seems to think that...the-way-to-sound-dramatic-is-to-pause-between-each-word or two.
So, I couldn't take it. I put it aside. maybe I'll find the print version and give it a try. Till then I've noted the reader of this one down.

She started writing stories and poems as a small child; attempted first book (an illustrated biography of the family dog) at age six.
