I have over 3 dozen audio books from Audible and this is the first time I've decided to buy the book and just read it. I want to hear Simon Johnson's take on these 13 powerful bankers -- and their grip on our economy, but the narration has an odd cadence. The beginning of sentences start out fine, but the narrator ends the last few syllables of nearly every sentence in a clipped staccato. The effect is nearly hypnotic. The content is already somewhat dry and I listen while commuting 2 hours each week -- sometimes late in the evening. I listen to keep me alert -- but this narrator's style lulls me like a baby. Listen to the sample -- maybe it won't bother you and the content is certainly worth the listen/read.
