Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Narration was somewhat monotonous, but I might have stuck with it, if it weren't for the additional annoyance of having to constantly hear Mormon-specific words pronounced incorrectly. I've decided to return the audio book.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Pronunciation was frequently incorrect

Although the narrator has a good voice and enunciated clearly it was woefully obvious that he had not studied any of the background of the text. This became most obvious in references to some of the Canon used by the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints and in the way that he would describe what should've been referred to as chapters and verses instead he referred to them as books. Even though a certain reference, such as the doctrine and covenants, was abbreviated it was obvious also that he made no attempt to try to help the listener better understand what the abbreviation meant. He also must not have interviewed anyone who is a member of the church for them to be able to help him understand the typical way in which certain words and names in particular are pronounced. I found it extremely distracting. otherwise had he been more diligent to what the listener heard than how he assumed something should have been said his narration would have been better. It is doubtful I will purchase another audible with him as narrator
