Decent, but skips a lot

The story is fantastic. I chose this version because I liked the narrator's voice. However, his performance is choppy. Sometimes it flows nicely, other times it feels like he is struggling to read the words correctly. Also, this version skips, specifically noticed in Chapter 10 (which is actually Chapter 7 in the book). I thought it was just my computer, but it happened different times on different devices. Very disappointing.

Skipping

This version skips often... The story is great and I loved every moment of it.
