Can the music in the background

Annoying accompaniment to speaker detracted from the performance.
Narrator spoke with very little modulation. B minus

Was this recording edited? so many errors

There is some faint background music playing on repeat - never had that with any other audiobook. The reader sounds like an amateur, Lots of stumbles, self-corrections and many mispronunciations and peculiar phrasing as though he is seeing the text for the first time. I've persisted so far only because I don't have another unheard title either in Audible or from the public library. But the poor performance and the annoying background are making it hard to concentrate on the story.

This is my first disappointment from Audible. I bought it because I loved Parade's End by the same author , but sadly, not the same narrator.
