The BOOK is great. It moves fast and is well written. I will continue reading it with great joy. But I will NOT buy another Audible book because this was so dreadful. You need readers who bring a book alive, not readers who totally annihilate a book
Nothing was disappointing in the story, only with the narrator. It's a wonderful book when I read it myself. Audible destroys this book.
His voice is dead. Little inflection. Very slow and over-pronounced. Almost like a computer reading the story, but frankly, Siri is MUCH better.
I expected an animated reading that I could play as I drive, but this reading is so horrible, that I'd fall asleep in 3 minutes.
This could be a dry book, considering it is a historical documentary. When I read it myself (and I could read the whole book by the time this reader has finished section 1 of 4-5 sections) it is lively and exciting.
Imagine books as documentaries: is the narrator lively? Does he make the story come alive? Does he keep your interest? Do you wait breathlessly for the next chapter?
That's what is needed here. However, with this narrator, I'd quickly change the channel.
None. Great story. History. Documentary. I'd find a good narrator.
Please give me a refund. I couldn't bear going beyond 10 minutes.
