Seriously Horrible

If you can get past the fact that it sounds like he is reading inside a tin can, this narrator is absolutely impossible to listen to for more than a few minutes without zoning out. He pauses at the most inoportune times, right in. ......... the middle of a sentence. I don't even know what to say about this. I laughed out loud when I first heard it. Was this done in someone's basement? Was the guy holding his nose? I got through precisely 24 minutes before I gave up. And that was listening on 1-1/2 times speed. Awful.

This guy shouldn't be allowed to read outloud

I liken the experience to cutting yourself then pouring lemon juice on the wound. I bet the story is good though.
