This was AWFUL!

Teagan McKenzie rushed through this 36 minutes with no inflection or drama. It's as if she got a bonus if she could read it. She went from one line to the next and barely took a breath, not stopping for any length of time when there was clearly a broken or missing word. Because of this, I couldn't keep track of the story because she ran everything together. I'd love to hear this read by a professional, like George Guidall. It would make the experience so much more satisfying.

Old english...

it would be much better to have a modern English translation . Why not just leave it in the original language since Elizabethian English needs to be translated for modern people

not that great but not horrible either

the main problem with this is that the author is narrating what was originally a song. Combine that with parts of the texts that are just plain missing. Unfortunately this makes it a very difficult listen. Though you might want to listen to it if you can't slog through the text, which is what I did. It's not very long so if you can endure the lousy narration, you can finish it. it would be nice if somebody took the innumerable ish and translated it into a fantasy novel or something much more consumable.
