    "Solid story but the narration is distracting."

    I have not yet completed this listen and I am not sure I am going to. The story is solid and the characters are well written. However, I find the narration to be so poor that I don't think I can finish. It seems like the narrator has no idea what he is reading. He emphasizes random words in every sentence like he has a formula for reading without any cognizance of what should be emphasized. I don't know how else to explain it. He sing-songs through every sentence with a strange cadence that is all over the map. Would recommended reading the book but not listening to it.
