Seriously, this is the worst reader I have ever heard. The voice is very fine and the accent is perfect for James but he doesn't seem to understand what he is reading. The inflection is sing-song - pitched and paced seemingly without regard to the meaning of sentence or word. Ninety-percent of the time the reader puts emphasis on the wrong syllable of a word and/or the wrong word in a sentence. Luckily, the reading is slow enough to allow a listener to sort out the word-puzzle sentence by sentence without falling behind. At first I honestly thought the reading style was some sort of conceptual play on the bad acting of the Miriam Ruth character - I soon realized it was just a terrible performance by the reader - as though he were reading from a book that had only one word per page-turn and could only guess the likely role each word might play in a sentence before flipping the page to read the next - it was torture.
