ACH! Forget it. I started listening in 2008, got more than ½ way though, and gave up because it was boring and I HATED the narration. I tried again n..Show More »ow (Dec 2012) and I just can’t go on. I’m 38% done and I could not care less.
This might be the best story ever, but I will never know it because the narration is terrible. The strong Scottish accent of some of the characters is IMPOSSIBLE to understand.
But that pales in comparison to the DISGUSTING, REVOLTING noises going on during the narration. Wet, clicking, smacking, swallowing sounds… it he actually eating??? Maybe sucking on a mint? Loose dentures?? Really it’s like he’s talking with his mouth full - It’s so distracting (gross) I just can’t go on.
