West, Cooper. “The Protector” [Unabridged] [Audible Audio Edition—narrated by Paul Morey], Audiobook Dreamspinner, 2014.
I never learn. I guess that is because I always like to give a second chance but I will never understand why anyone who writes a really poorly written novel would want to have it made into an audio book—especially one that plays for over 8 hours. But then this is by Cooper West and I must say she is tenaciously trying to prove she can write but always comes up short. The story is banal, the characters are unreal and the dialogue…well, if you want to go it dialogue. There is no character development and we have this plot in several other books and it just does not gel. It all occurs in an alternate reality which I wish would stay so alternate that I will never have to look at it again.
This is a story filled with angst and this anger probably is due to the angry and unstable personality of the writer. This seems to be a characteristic of her writing.
