The Practice of the Presence of God: The Best Rule

I very much disliked the reader of this book he ruined a beautiful book. He was uneven and noticeable trying to pronounce every word clearly and distinctly so much so that I lost the sense of the story line. In my opinion the reader should be transparent and not take away from flavor of the original author. I deleted the book and hope that another reader will be found.
