I get the audio books because I spend a great deal of time in my car going to & from work. The accents on this CD where terrible and I fought myself from just turning it off and sending the CD back, I felt like I'd be much better of reading the book itself. The narrators voice is like nails down a chalk board, the accents or horrible and Wyatt is completely mono toned. Iím continuing on however as I donít want to miss what is probably a great story once you wade thru Blaireís whining. For this particular book stick with the hard copy and avoid the audio. The first person story telling is also a negative unless that is a forum your comfortable with. 7/22/10 Update: Couldn't take it anymore sent the audio book back unfinished. If your interested in this title buy the book.
