Very poor sound quality

I have just started listening to this book and am very suprised by the incredibly poor sound quality. It sounds as if it was done on an old cassette recorder. This makes listeing it it very distracting. I'm going to keep listening to see if the content overcomes the lack of quality, but if this might be an issue for you, make sure you listen to the sample before you buy it -- I wish I had!
