Confused...

I'm not sure how to mess up Emerson. The information is priceless and timeless. But the delivery of the reader is pitiful. It sounds like an intoxicated robot trying to be sarcastic... or serious, I'm not sure which. Its a little frustrating. I even want a refund. I've listened to many books by many narrators and have heard good and not so good. This one is bad and has prompted me to leave my first review so that you don't make the same mistake. At least listen to the sample reading... I didn't.
