Poor audio

The premise of this book is interesting, however the recording is abysmal. It sounds like the reader used a voice activated mike to record it. There is noticeable background noise while his voice is audible then during a mid-sentence pause the mike shuts off and there is an eerie silence followed by his voice and noise resuming. This gives a staccato effect to his reading with sudden changes in pitch, volume, and cadence. I could only listen for an hour. I will buy the print edition of this book.

Who edited this?

I have to agree. The recording transitions are indeed awful and distracting. I thought my mp3 player broke at first. Once I got over the readers transitions between reading sessions, the story picked up for me. I assume the big differences in voice tone is caused by going for a smoke outside in the dead of winter and then returning to work too quickly not allowing the cords to loosen up again. After making it through to the end, I realized that it wasn't. The last chapter is missing. There was too much answered to stretch to another book and too little left not to finish it. Even so it was fun getting there, even though ultimately disappointing at the abrupt ending.
