A very poor reading with virtually no Soul…

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is a great book. I just suggest you buy the actual book itself and not waste time with this recording

What didn’t you like about Jim Frangione’s performance?

I thought the performance was incredibly amateurish. It sounded like a 1st read through with almost surprised stops at the end of sentences as if he wasn't expecting them while over inflating other parts of sentences that required no emphasis. Among other things when someone is "secunded" it should not be read as seconded and one would assume if the reader didn't pick it up the director would've corrected it.The reader also has no range for alternate voices and when you pay this much money for performance you expect it would not just be a read through without any voice acting of any kind.

Any additional comments?

Very uneven audio publications from this company. I've had some very good productions from this company but both titles by this author have been far from acceptable.

Not a well produced audio book.

The chapters don’t match the actual chapters from the book. It takes forever to find the chapters as printed in the physical book. I was reading the book in print and hope my to listen to the book as I drove/worked. Didn’t work out. The voice acting is trash and there are inexplicable pauses, 10 seconds or so, in the middle of chapters. It’s a good book but you’d be better if finding a paperback than fighting through this garbage.
