Sounds like text-to-speech not narration
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Can't even give an honest review of the story because the sound is so bad I can't stand to listen to it.
Would you be willing to try another book from Holly Tucker? Why or why not?
Sure, if I could hear a real narrator read it.
What didn’t you like about Julia Farhat’s performance?
Sounds like text-to-speech, over-enunciates, choppy, terrible!

Ok Book, Awful Narrator -- Warning
What made the experience of listening to Blood Work the most enjoyable?
Interesting medical history for period about which little is commonly known.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Narrator does not appear to have professional voice -- my wife and I both felt that her inflection and tone were incredibly "grating". Attempts at dramatic inflection just made things worse. Almost painful to listen to.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
While enjoyable, it was not such a compelling narrative that I felt the need to get through it in one sitting. Part of the problem was the poor narrator. Listening for too long was just painful.
Any additional comments?
I will exercise care never to order a book with this narrator. Audible should not use this narrator again -- at least for any kind of non-fiction (which is genrally all I listen do).
