No. Mostly because it was unnecessarily long in my opinion. I get where she was going, but if you've read any of Brene Brown's other books, there's just so much repeat information. Not quite sure what made this one different for her. Unfortunately, the narration was so distracting that I couldn't get through the whole thing. Even so, a lot of times when I get a bad narration, I can usually tell if the text is worth it and I'll buy the ebook. I don't feel compelled to do that this time.
The repetition of themes and information from her other books. I felt like it was just another book about shame. Also it came off as a little self-righteous at times, but I couldn't tell if that was the words or the narration.
This narrator was trying way too hard to get across what was already in the words. She sounded so forced - like she was trying to give it so much emotion. The book already has that tone, very emotional and heartfelt, so the narrator just over did it. She also made the author sound self-righteous in a lot of parts due to her tone. Particularly when the author talked about moments where she felt shocked or saddened by another's reactions. If she'd pulled back and let it flow naturally it would have been much better.
I wish I had read the review first. I'm reading this book for work and am having a hard time getting through it with the current narrator. I then watched some of Brene's videos and this seriously should be narrated by her!!! The narrator is too slow and is quite frankly making this book weird. I'm going to have to just read the book and try to get that woman's voice out of my head.
Please ask Brene to narrate this book!!!!
how awful the narrator is
Brene to narrate the book
While the content of this book on genuineness is great, the reading of it is so phony that I can't bear to listen to it. I will go back to listening to Brene Brown speak her own words; she speaks from the heart.
Purchased the Power of Vulnerability and loved it. I don't think twice when ordering this audio. It sounds computer generated. It's so bad that I can't even stand to listen to it. Very frustrating!
Love Brene Brown
Cannot finish the audio. I will have to purchase the actual hard copy of the book.
I love Brene Btown's work!!!! I DO NOT LIKE THIS NARRATOR. She really ruins the book. Brene does an excellent job as a narrator in Raising Strong
The voice of the narrator was so hard to listen to that I couldn't even get through the book. I actually quit audible because of it. I don't want to purchase an audio book where I can't return a book that is way to difficult to listen to.
Who could get through it
Heavily!!! I didn't make it one minute into the book before I had to stop. I was so annoyed by the sound of her voice. UHG!!!
Who could listen to it!!!
I want another book to replace this!!!
The narration on this book sounds computerized and is too difficult to listen too. I didn't make it through 5 minutes. I will just buy the book for my kindle
If you search for 'The Power of Vulnerability' you'll find a live talk from Brene Brown, of which about 80% is identical to this book. Because Brene Brown is a lively speaker who doesn't take herself too seriously, it's a much more enjoyable listening experience.
