Description

It is winter in Area X, the mysterious wilderness that has defied explanation for 30 years, rebuffing expedition after expedition, refusing to reveal its secrets. As Area X expands, the agency tasked with investigating and overseeing it - the Southern Reach - has collapsed on itself in confusion. Now one last, desperate team crosses the border, determined to reach a remote island that may hold the answers they've been seeking. If they fail, the outer world is in peril. Meanwhile, Acceptance tunnels ever deeper into the circumstances surrounding the creation of Area X - what initiated this unnatural upheaval? Among the many who have tried, who has gotten close to understanding Area X - and who may have been corrupted by it?

Bad to worse

I have been plodding through this series, only keeping going because the story is rather interesting and I want to see how it turns out. That said, from books 1 to 3, the audio performances have gone from bad to worse. This third book is almost unlisten-able.

Between books 2 and 3, the reading by Bronson Pinchot is maddeningly awful. His attempts at dramatic emphasis feel completely misplaced and ruins the rhythm of the text. I swore at the end of book 2 that I would not complete the series, it was that bad. But I pulled the trigger, only to find that he is BACK in book 3, with two others to "help".

Carolyn McCormick is not too bad a reader, but I felt that her performance let down book 1. Now, she is the best of the three in 3! But in her case the editing is sometimes ridiculously bad, mid-sentence going from clear to sounding like she is underwater. Or within a span of a couple of minutes, sounding like a paragraph was recorded in 4 separate takes, each 3 weeks apart.

And then there is Xe Sands, who's affected drawl is, simply, brutal.

Sorry for being so harsh, but I have listened to a lot of audio books and this was the first time I felt really strongly that the performance absolutely RUINED the story.
