    "The book was better"

    I have rarely experienced a narrator I disliked as much as this one. The man chewed his words and had about as much sense of excitement and adventure as a can of Lima beans. Also, he didn't really have much sense of character voices, and chose the driest performance options when a line could be read in more than one way.

    I found myself coming to dread listening to this thing, and thought I actually disliked the story, but it confused me, because I remembered loving both this book and others written by Alexander when I was a child. I picked up a copy of the physical book that my husband had lying around, and Lo! Reading it silently, it sounded more fun and full of wonder in just a few short paragraphs than I had experienced in three chapters listening to him.

    Seriously, if you can get to experience this story in ANY other medium, go there. This narrator is better suited for reading self help books for insomniacs than children's books.
