Incorrect Narration

The narrator pronounces words wrong, and outright misreads them frequently. I purchased the whispersinc version, so it was blatantly obvious when he was making a mistake.

Interesting

I wasn't sure I would like this book, but I found it very interesting. There were some factors that I don't think are practiced anymore and that may be to our disadvantage.
