    Story
    "Book on creativity with robotic narration"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The subject is one as a psychologist, that I am highly interested in. However due to the narration, I don't know who would enjoy this book.


    What was most disappointing about Shelley Carson’s story?

    I couldn't listen as this narration was the most robotic I have ever heard in an audiobook, Unlike other audiobooks that I enjoy listening to each time I tried to listen I couldn't go past about five minutes due to the narration.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    How ironic that a book on creativity is narrated by someone who sounds like they are trying to emulate a synthesized voice!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I'd like to see a place where book narrators are rated along with authors
