Avoid this recording.

This recording is not up to professional standards. The reading is terrible; and it has poorly-done drop-ins and even a few audible (with a small A) page turns. Worst of all, the last part of the book is missing. A complete disaster and an embarrassment.

Recording kills it.

I don't usually leave reviews, but I just wanted to warn people about this. The recording is absolutely terrible. It almost sounds like they're doing it through a soup can and string method. The narrator puts random inflections like he's asking questions randomly in almost every sentence. The performance itself seems like someone who is reading it for the first time to school children trying to make every sentence seem interesting and so he moves the tone of his voice up and down at random. He also speaks very quickly with no need to pause for punctuation so its the first book I've had to actually slow down . It also feels like any space between sentences was edited out. It's made it very difficult to follow.

I'm sure the story has it's moments and is probably very entertaining, but I'm honestly lost with this performance and I don't really know what is happening with the narrator trying to read the book out loud as fast as possible with no concept of tone or punctuation. I'm also unsure if a single breath was taken in the making of this recording.
