Did Not Finished:

Godiva by Nicole Galland

We have yet another strike-out on audio. I’m beginning to lose track of how many this is and lose hope that I will find a stellar audiobook ever again. Most of them lately were just meh. The problem with this one is not the story. It is actually fairly interesting, albeit trite. The problem is with the narrator. Exactly one-third of the way into the audio, there are mouth sounds – the kind where the mouth is either too wet or too dry and you can hear the gums flapping and moving as one speaks. Ugh. That is an immediate delete for me. I even gave her a few minutes to see if it was just an editing flub and ended quickly. I have no idea if it did end because I turned off the book and went home and deleted it from my iTunes library. This was for a review, so I do feel somewhat guilty about dumping it like I did. Then again, mouth sounds. There are some things you just do not want to hear through ear buds.
