Shoot the robot

The narrator made this book too painful to focus on the words, too bad because it appeared to be a good book.

Ruined by narration

I can't even listen to the book. I can't even concentrate on the material because the narrator is horrible. obviously not a native English speaker, her inflection and tone is all over the place. It was almost difficult to even listen to the introduction. I was hoping that the introduction was narrated by her and then the actual material would be narrated by someone else but much to my dismay, she continued on. This will teach me to listen to a sample before I ever get an audiobook. This should be re-recorded and put back out. I guarantee you you'll have many more purchases. now I know why there were only 50 reviews while all the other audiobooks were well into the hundreds and close to a thousand. I guess everybody else was smart enough to listen to a sample first and realize that the narrator has now ruined the audiobook.

Can’t even listen to it 😡

I would like to say I got something from this besides a headache. The narrators voice is so awful that I turned it off after 15 agonizing minutes.

Good book, horrible voice acting.

The content is great, but the voice artist makes it almost impossible to listen to.

Couldn’t concentrate on the Contant because the voice was so bad.

As I listened to this audiobook I kept asking myself, how bad is the author’s voice if he thought this was better???

The speaker’s bizarre, artificial voice was so distracting that I couldn’t even stand to listen past chapter 1. I’d like to learn more about Permaculture, but it will have to be from someone else. What a disappointment! I’m sorry I wasted a credit on this terrible book.

Is the narrator taking the piss?

How anyone on the team let this audiobook go out with this narrator is beyond me.

Unlistenable!

painful to listen to

the orator sounds like a computer generated voice, no real content or guidelines just general vague definitions of what permaculture is

I hope it's a reliable audible for us

There is so much information here that is so well presented. However, I am totally convinced of the merits and principles of this approach.
