very bad narration

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This is the worst narrator I have come across..Iwouls like to return this audio book.

What didn’t you like about Ken Maxon’s performance?

His voice is contorted and very disturbing. It is not smooth...

Any additional comments?

I am rating this ONLY based on the Narrator. Not the book (unfortunately). I have therefore given 3stars to "Story" to be fair.

Foucalled and Cant?

Where does Wittgenstein rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Ken Maxon would be better off selling self help books.

The text is pretty good though because its mostly just quoting Wittgenstein.
