    "good content, obnoxious narrator"

    The choice of Marc Vietor to narrate this book is unfortunate. His faux-"highbrow" reading voice is pompous and ponderous, at best a ridiculous and annoying self-parody. He should stick to science fiction, where I guess this sort of inflated wind-baggery passes as some species of advanced knowingness.
