Very bad recording

The quality of the recording is bad. The microphone used is very poor. You can hear really loud the ambience where it was recorded. A lot of edits with different ambience room tones is annoying and distracting. The reading is completely flat without intention or inner action. Almost as if the reader is not even paying attention of what she says. This makes a not so enjoyable book, even if the book is good.
