This is a terrible reading of these 3 classics.
When listening to the narrators' preface to the Book of Five Rings, the realization that this was not a man with a deep understanding of the source material sharing his knowledge and insights with the world, but rather some guy who probably realized these three books are royalty free and he could read them and make some $$$ on Audible.This realization hit pretty hard when he pronounced "samurai" to rhyme with the last 3 syllables of "calamari" (like: "some-arr-ee"). His summary seemed to focus on making the story more accessible but seemed very contrived and uninformed of the original text.
n/a. I'd say cheap, but even with this being the cheapest book I've ever bought from Audible it's still the only one I've ever wanted a refund on.
[trying to be constructive]To the narrator: if you really want to do these works justice, gain an understanding of the books first and start over. Also with there being 3 books in this a "Table of Contents" in the product description page that lists what chapter on the download relates to which book. This downloads as 51 chapters, but you have no way to know which chapter belongs to which book without checking each one.
