    "Poor narration"

    I couldn't finish it. The narration is killing me...and life is just too short to suffer through this. The book is not being 'expressed' through the narrator. The narrator has his own style and what you get is that style - very strongly expressed. He could be reading ANY book - I don't think he is even hearing the words he is saying. I bet if we stopped him to ask what he just read he would have no idea. And that's the problem. After a few minutes I realize I have no idea what he is saying - my mind wanders because I'm sure the narrators mind has wandered. He is just not present or focused on the book and I can't get present either.
