Written well enough, but after fifteen minutes of waiting for the narrator to vary his tone or try any ONE phrase group with a different intonation I started getting irritated.
After an hour of the same speech inflection I became positively distracted and after ninety minutes, for the first time ever in 3 years of Audiobook subscribing, I gave up.
This reader has all the soul and imagination of the automatic announcer at the post office, endlessly intoning "Customer number three, please" over and over... I've heard Sat-Nav with more spark.
At no point did the narrator give any indication that he was knowledgeable, or even interested in his subject material. Which is a pity, because it was actually a well-researched book.
I'll order it in print, and forget this sorry experience ever happened.
If companies are going to produce audio for Audible, they have a responsibility to ensure the material is properly directed and checked for quality. If a professional director has been anywhere near this, I would suggest that he / she has a good think about why he / she turns up for work.
I did try the audio clip, but (silly me) I didn't imagine just how mind-crushing that whining voice would be after any length of time.
