I am a fan of Brett Battles, but this one, so far is a big disappointment. 1 hour 40 minutes into it and I have to say, this woman is a very poor nar..Show More »rator for this kind of book. I started it over because I have no idea what it is about.( Realizing my mind went elsewhere while she is droning on). Now, just 35 minutes into it again and I am disgusted. Should have tried the ebook and read it myself. I don't understand why the people who make the choice in narrators don't realize how important their decisions are. These books aren't cheap. It is even worse when you buy as many of them as I do and about half are good experiences and the other half are like driving down the freeway and tossing money out the window.
I can imagine the difficulty in reading for an audiobook to give all potential listeners a great experience. There are some out there who can do this with what seems like a cake walk for them, and I am amazed by their excellent job. That being said, I try to give the opposite readers a break and just struggle along with them to the very end. (I know I would be terrible at it).
I have had about 5 books in a row that I simply couldn't get through. Monotone, droning on, etc, is not what will keep me buying these books.
I am putting this book away for now.....maybe another day I will try it again and feel differently.
