Zoeytron I am not familiar with her voice, but will do my utmost to avoid it now. Just the thought of the sound of fingernails on a blackboard makes the fillings in my teeth hurt. No one has time for the pain.
Good for you to DNF it on audio, Kelly.


Kelly (and the Book Boar) Thanks Zoey! I never was able to watch any of her television programs/stand-up routines because her voice annoyed me so terribly. I am glad I gave her books a chance, though, because they have provided some laughs.


Optimist ♰King's Wench♰ Congratulations on your first DNF! Atta girl! 🥂

Diane S ☔ Too funny, Kelly.

Evgeny My motto is, life is too short not to DNF. I think I will do it with my current read (NOT Kate Daniels).

Angela M I agree with Evgeny - life’s too short! Loved your review!

Vivian So proud. You GO, girl.

Thomas Strömquist To this date, I managed exactly one book narrator; Douglas Adams - reading his own books (don’t know if he ever did anything else). It’s not for lack of trying, but I never found (and never likely will, since I stopped trying) another book that I’ll enjoy in that format....

Aisling Zena This is my issue with audio books. If the voice is grating to me, it just makes the book suck even if it's good. They should make Stephen Fry narrate everything lol! Congrats on your DNF! :) xx

Val ⚓️ Shameless Non-Snowflake ⚓️ Yesssss! DNFs are the road to happiness...or at least the road away from suicide at times...

And this is also exactly why I have never picked up an audio book. Scared I'll hate the narrator and will then hate a book I would have otherwise liked. I don't know. I keep saying I will try it, but then I never do. Also, lazy.


Kelly (and the Book Boar) Thank you everyone! I avoided audio for ages because I was afraid I'd be bored, or the reader would suck or my drive was too short, etc. etc. I'm glad I gave it a chance because it does break up the monotony of the same songs on the radio/makes my lunchtime walk go by faster. I'm just still learning what does/doesn't work for my type of listening ability ; )
