No. The book was fine. It is over 100 years old and shows some wear, but is an interesting look into the past. My real issue is that the narrator is just so bad. Let me explain. He has a fine voice for audible. But he emphasizes words and syllables in the middle of sentences and pauses in the middle of sentences for no reason, that the sentence loses its meaning or causes confusion. He doesn't just do it on occasion, it is throughout the entire book. It made listening to his version of this book so unenjoyably that I will never listen to a book with this narrator again.
Terrible. Why pause in the middle of sentences for no reason? Why the emphasis on words or syllables in the middle of sentences? How did this get past the producer?
I'm very surprised as the production quality of this book seems well done that the performance by the reader was so bad.
