Terrible narration .

It was very irritating to hear the monotonous voice of the narrator. He not only made several mistakes with pronunciation but also has no expression. Very disappointing experience.

Interesting book, terrible narration

The authors writing is personal, rich in detail, entertaining and at times illuminating. It is however ruined by terrible narration: incorrect pronunciation, no pause for punctuation and I’d hazard a guess at poor editing of the voice over such that is speeds up in places it shouldn’t. The book would be served well with a fresh narration
