Not Much History Discussion, Robot Voice

I was hoping to hear about the history used in All The Light We Cannot See, instead this gives a literary analysis. There are some good symbolism connections but I felt that a majority of this was simply summarizing the book's sections. Disappointed. Plus, the reader sounds like a robot. I really wonder if it is. I almost turned it off in the first 5 mins bc of the voice. Sorry to be harsh but just being honest.

Save your dollar.

unlike the phenomenal book this is supposed to be analysing, this has bery little substance. there are no real insights or revelations.
