    "very bad narration"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is the worst narrator I have come across..Iwouls like to return this audio book.


    What didn’t you like about Ken Maxon’s performance?

    His voice is contorted and very disturbing. It is not smooth...


    Any additional comments?

    I am rating this ONLY based on the Narrator. Not the book (unfortunately). I have therefore given 3stars to "Story" to be fair.

    Story
    "Narration is painful."
    What disappointed you about Wittgenstein?

    It is very difficult to concentrate on the argument when the narration is this bad. Thee naray. Torsounds like ay. Com, puter.


    Has Wittgenstein put you off other books in this genre?

    No, but certainly books narrated by Ken Maxon.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator killed the book. Really sounded like a computer-generated voice. And a bad one at that.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Worth a read if you're interested in Wittgenstein or analytic philosophy. Definitely not worth a listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to a sample first!
