Awful Narration

The narration is so bad, it is intolerable. The content is as expected, but I was unable to finish after ten minutes or so.

It is like listening to an adult learn how to read out loud - plodding along with zero flow or continuity. Additionally, the narrator speaks with an unusually distracting articulation of words. It is though there is a period every two to five words, and also random words are given emphasis for no reason.

It is as if a person in church was called up to the podium to read a passage from the Bible, but has never actually read any of the material previously, and has never spoken before in front of people.

In a word, awful.

Narration lead to refund

The narration was so dreadfully incomprehensible I found myself getting a migraine rather than learning. I am deeply upset

WOW

This is what the world needs. I can now not go back to the way of life I was living. I will do everything in my power to be a light to the world. Hate must never win!!
