I was very excited to start this audiobook but found it very difficult to listen to the content with the narrators dramatized and unnecessarily emotional tone. This hardly seems like the kind of book that warrants such random emotional segements, which are completely irrelevant to the content mind you! Really distracting!

Classic study; distracting narrator
If you could sum up Madness and Civilization in three words, what would they be?
Madness = social control
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dave Gillies?
Gillies was not the right choice for this narration. The problem is not his Scottish accent; it's his ponderous style. Foucault's themes are heavy and his mode of exposition is intricate, but stylistically he is light on his feet, like a dancer or a featherweight boxer. This quality of his writing and thinking is completely lost in Gillies' rendition.
