This is neither a joke nor an exaggeration: I am less than two minutes into this audiobook, and the narrator has mispronounced three basic English words: furtive, stolidly, and direst. I have deleted it from iTunes and will read it instead.
“As you know, madness is like gravity...all it takes is a little push.” The Joker
The book is supposedly a classic but very badly written, not coherent and rather dull.
The old language and over dramatized narration didn't help.
The narration of this book is so fast and brash that I actually couldn't finish it. It's supposed to be a story about Babylon, but it has a narrator with a very strong American accent which spoils the atmosphere of the story.
This had a great overall theme
I do my listen on car trips and it workout great.
I started this book on Youtube and then came to Audible excitedly to listen to a professional version. I must say I am quite disappointed with the terrible narration! The Youtube version has a computer generated narration which was actually a LOT better than this narration.
The reader hurries through the text at break neck speed. He switched from paragraph to paragraph from concept to concept with out giving us time time even take a breath!
I have a good mind to ask Audible for a refund!
This book was good. It's translated into old English which would normally bother me, but it seemed fitting for this text. For me it reinforced concepts of saving and gave compound interest a new example.
"The Richest Man in Babylon"
This is a wonderful book with many great lessons that are very useful to every day life. However it was totally ruined for me by the reader. The book came highly recommended and so I did not listen to the preview if I had I would not have purchased it!!
"Review Richest man in Babylon"
Read/listen instead the following books,
they are clearer on the principles of entrepreneurship and money management:
Think and Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill
Cashflow Quadrants and Rich Dad Poor Dad both by Robert Kyosaki.
