A wrestler’s journey

I bought the book used from amazon because it’s impossible to listen to without following along due to a robotic voice. If you are a lousy reader like me, then you should do both. I wrestled, so I get goosies following along.

Good book, horrible reading

The story is pretty good it was hard to put up with the reading performance. The narrator sounds like the first ever made computerized text to speech program. The book switches from present scenes to past scenes, and this excellent writing style is ruined and made difficult to distinguish by the narrator's robotic tone.

Robot voice

The book is interesting yet almost impossible to listen to due to the narrator's computer generated voice.
