Reading spoils the memorability
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The reading is focused on getting lower case and capital letters right and it spoils the comprehensibleness of the content and the codes. I couldn't follow the codes being read because of so many "Capital S, h e e t , rather than just reading it as "sheet". Please do not read it with so much focus on getting capital and lower letters right. The most important thing is to give the listeners an idea of the codes rather than getting us to try to figure out by listening what is being spelled out.
Would you ever listen to anything by Daniel Jones again?
I may, if the reading method is changed to more listener friendly way. I don't mind codes being read out as it helps me to remember the codes, but when it is read with so many "Capital S and lower h...", and spelling out words, it completely spoils the comprehensibility.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I couldn't follow the codes being read because of the reasons above.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The idea of reading codes was good, rather than skipping them all together like some other audiobooks However, I didn't like too many capital and lower case distinction and spelling out the codes, rather than reading them like normal words.
