    A holy man to Hindus, a hero to Muslims, and a criminal to the British, Mohandas K. Gandhi was an inspiring figure of the 20th century, a man whose quest to live in accord with God’s highest truth led him to initiate massive campaigns against racism, violence, and colonialism.

    "Narration disappointment"
    Overall

    It would be hard to exaggerate how disappointed I am in this audio. Bill Wallace's voice, diction, and pacing - while probably excellent for many other narrations - take my mind so far away from Gandhi's words that I feel like I'm listening to the reading of a cookbook. I've tried to make myself relax and listen "past" his voice. I've been so eager to enjoy it: I thought I'd be able to get used to the narration. However, it's so disconnected from the subject of the reading that I can't get past it.

    I'm glad others have been able to enjoy what I'm sure is an amazing book. My best advice is to make sure you listen to the sample. I obviously got so excited about the book that I forgot to sample it, and thus I set myself up for disappointment.

    Maybe I was hoping to hear Ben Kingsley. :)
