Narrator a bit flat

The book was alright, I guess you could also say that it was quite annoying when some of the sentence structures and words were visibly trying to sound posh and more complicated than needed, especially for an introductory book. I have read other philosophy books and they don't always do this.

The narrator was kind of flat and read almost like a machine (except without the hitches of wrong pronunciation that machines have).

All in all it wasn't a "bad" job, just not spectacular either.
