    Weaving insights from philosophy, neuroscience, and history into a rich narrative, The Shallows explains how the Internet is rerouting our neural pathways, replacing the subtle mind of the book reader with the distracted mind of the screen watcher. A gripping story of human transformation played out against a backdrop of technological upheaval, The Shallows will forever alter the way we think about media and our minds.

    "Fine book; awful narration"
    Overall

    Unfortunately, this is the first audiobook I've ever stopped listening to because of the narration. The text of the book would warrant a higher rating, but I found the narrator distractingly bad.

    I realize these things are often a matter of personal taste, but a warning to those with sensitive ears: definitely make sure to listen to the sample first. If you find yourself squirming after 30 seconds, I promise you'll be screaming after 30 minutes.

    I plan to finish reading a physical copy of the book, as it's quite interesting. So if you can handle the narrator, by all means check it out.
