Boring Information Made More Boring

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It probably would be, if I could remain interested.

If you’ve listened to books by The Wall Street Journal before, how does this one compare?

I haven't listened to others, but I will try. Maybe they use different people, but I kind of doubt it.

What didn’t you like about The Wall Street Journal’s performance?

The reader makes this very dry material even more painful. I had hoped to use the WSJ as a way to catch up on the news, since I spend so much time listening to audio books instead of listening to NPR. It's just not as interesting nor as engaging as NPR. The reader doesn't speak in a conversational way, but as bursts of information. It could be done better by a reader who finds the stories interesting; this guy seems so bored and reads only slightly better than the automated telephone "operators" at my bank when they repeat back the numbers I have entered.

Was The Morning Read from The Wall Street Journal, December 31, 2015 worth the listening time?

Probably not for me. I couldn't sit through the mechanical-sounding reading.

Any additional comments?

I hope the presentation gets better soon. It would be handy to be able to keep up with the news this way, if only I could remain focused on what's being said.
