“I read first in print and enjoyed a great deal. Later when I listened to the audio version, I wrote this review for the Speaking of Audiobooks column in 6/10:
Narrated by Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank
Although not one of my favorites in the Troubleshooters series, this is still an entertaining audiobook. But my level of enjoyment was due mostly to the author’s talent rather than the dual narration. Leads Max and Gina are well known to followers of the series but it was the continued love story between Jones and Molly that spelled absolute magic for me. The dual narration seemed strange in that the two narrators alternate reading chapters rather than perform scenes together. It took a good deal of time to accustom myself to Lawlor’s narration which has an immature “golly, gee” tone that seems totally out of sync with the story and especially the strong male characters. Melanie Ewbank performs adequately but why in the world do I need to recall two narrators’ interpretation of any one character? If I want to return to Breaking Point at some time in the future, it will be in print.
