Horrible voice

The narrator was painful to hear. He has a raspy voice easily drowned by ambient noise. By time the volume was high enough to hear the rasped parts, the rest was painfully loud.

The narrator paused frequently mid-phrase, which made the delivery stilted and awkward. The reading rate was uncomfortably slow, even at 3x.

What would have made Ratification better?

The performance would have been significantly improved with better volume control. I constantly had to adjust the volume up and down to try to maintain a consistent level.

Would you be willing to try another one of Johnny Heller’s performances?

No. I found Johnny Heller to be a poor choice as a reader. His voice seems to lack any upper register. Even when I increased the volume to the point I found it physically painful, I still found the words difficult to decipher. Any background noise at all made understanding almost impossible.
