      "Expected more"

      I had higher expectations of this very important topic.
      I wish they provided solutions to the problem they discussed.
      The gap between want and like.

      "Interesting; narration is not fantastic."

      I did not enjoy to bland, mechanical aspect of the narrators voice, but found the information engaging, easy to understand and fascinating.
