The american accent made it hard to follow.Also he changes the Romanian names completely.I am from Romania and is abvious he did not look into the correct pronounciation of Romanian places and names.Apart from that the story is perfect!

slow initially but stick with it

the story begins slowly and is a little hard to get into, but by the end it becomes a lot more gripping
