He read like he was telling a tale, rather than reading a book. It takes a little effort for a modern reader / listener to understand the old fashioned language but his pace is the perfect balance. He's slow enough that you are able to process and understand but not so slow that it's condescending or dragging. He clearly understood what he was reading and used inflection masterfully to help convey emotion, meaning, and intention.
Some other reviews complained about the reader adding in descriptions. This is how the Divine Comedy is written by Dante. If you're looking to add the Divine Comedy to your cannon you can't go wrong with this performance.
I couldn't truly rate the book well, the narration was horrid. He truly made listening to even the first hour of this book (all that I could get through) a chore!
His shrill voice for children, terrible 'falsetto' for women and drudging pace made this the worst audiobook I have ever purchased.
