We purchased this to listen to during a long drive. Previously we'd listened to Austen's Emma the same way. For this book we had to shut the playback off after less than 20 minutes; neither I nor my wife could stand to listen to it.
The reader rushes, there are no pauses for any kind of punctuation or between paragraphs. There is no expression, no sense that the reader understands what is meant for humor, or pathos, or satire. It is one flat, rapid, breathless, high-pitched gobble.
Can we have the 7.95 back, please?
