Least Engaging Narrator I've Encountered

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Could not keep my mind from wandering while listening to him read this book, and his Scottish accent for the quotes was a distraction.

great content terrible narrator

loved the content. Very interesting but the narrator was very dry and made it difficult to stay focused or interested. I would recommend only for the content if you want to learn about john Muir's life.
