voice

I didn't care for the narrator's voice. Not trying to be over critical, but it sounded almost like a computer generated voice.

Narration

The narration was wooden and robotic. I couldn't complete the book. The narrator sounded like a computer generated voice.

Poor narration and some story lines very un-PC.

Very poor narration and some very anti semitic story lines too. Although I am not Jewish myself, I would have been very offended by the stereotypical portrayal of Jews.

Great book, awful narrator!

Intonation would have been better if it was read by Siri. Alan seems to entirely miss the pertinent word in every sentence.
