Good information but poor narration. She stumbles a lot, belches once and generally sounds like she's reading in a large warehouse. Very poor sound and they left the belching, stumbling in tape without editing it out. Gross!!
If I had read a version of this book I'd be very complimentary about it but unfortunately I listened to an audio version.
The narrator has good diction and reads adequately but alas her performance sounds as it was recorded in an empty warehouse and it has not been edited.... hence the listener is treated to hear the narrator stumble over passages; she gets lost many times; goes vague and then finds her place and continues or she repeats lines; she hiccups or burps at one point; she regularly stumbles and repeats herself 2 and 3 times during reading; she clears her throat; rolls her tongue after it gets twisted and even swears twice at one point as she gets frustrated at her errors.
I'm sure all good narrators have these issues but the difference is that they are edited out of the finished product so the listener gets a quality product. In the case of this audio book I found the content got overshadowed by my my being more interested in counting each time she repeated herself "would she get up to 4 repeats or was 3 going to be her limit?"
Shame really as the author has written a high quality product it was just seriously compromised in my opinion by the quality of the audio production.
