The background noises, sound effects, etc. were annoying. They were loud and obnoxious. After every new topic change or new paragraph or whatever, there were all these crazy sounds - absolutely useless.
This book has an interesting format, taking specific items and putting them into context, thus explaining the historical background in Germany.
BUT, this production has the most tiresome, wearisome, annoying music (by the end of it I was ready to wrap the trumpet around the players neck). Please leave out the gimmicks and stick to a nicely read book!
