    Story
    "Stilted narration"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm sad to say that I was unable to listen to this audiobook. The story is a classic, so there are no surprises there.

    My problem is with the narration. The narrator has a wonderful voice, and in dialog passages his character voices are good, but most of the time his reading is painfully stilted. Instead of smoothly delivered exposition, the delivery stutters and jerks, with odd pauses everywhere.

    I'll have to try again, find another version with better narration.
