Needed a proper narrator
Would you consider the audio edition of The Cure: What If God Isn't Who You Think He Is and Neither Are You? to be better than the print version?
The narrator's voice is very jarring and you end up listening to it and her extreme annunciations instead of what she's saying. Clearly she was the wrong choice for this book. This book needed a calm, sage-type that understood the subject matter and took the time to read it properly. This narrator has so much energy, sounds like a computer spitting out words, and speaks so fast -- she does not suit the subject matter whatsoever. She does the book a great disservice, sadly. Her 'alternate' character voice is so nasally and robot-like ~~ it belongs in a children's or fantasy book. It was supposed to belong to a mentor-like character, yet it was hard not to laugh while listening to it. Completely unfortunate.
Otherwise, this is a great, concise book that will likely be extremely illuminating to most who read it. I'm contemplating purchasing it in non-audible form because the content is so good, but I won't because I'll never read it. Considering this book is only a few hours long, the authors should have the book re-published with a new narrator. That I would purchase and listen to often. This is important information, it highlights perspectives that actually can change lives very quickly. Sadly, it took all of my willpower to finish listening to it AND to glean the meaning/nature of what was being said, due to the narrator.

Worst narrator I've experienced
There just wasn't much I can recommend here. The tone of the writing seemed patronizing, as if talking to a child. And the narrator made it worse. I hate to be so critical of anyone, but she does not have the voice for this work. If you want a book along these lines, I highly recommend "Accidental Pharisees." Don't know if it's on Audible but it is excellent.
