Inaccurate title. Poor narration. Skip this book.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I'm sorry, I generally skip negative reviews as the internet is flooded with them, but the title of this book is inaccurate.
A more precise title would have been 'High-Level Introduction to Worm Farms'. Certainly not "Composting: The COMPLETE Gardeners guide". To say that title is a stretch would be too generous. I feel some publisher got to the author and they changed the name to sell more books.
I wanted a deep dive into Composting, getting into the Carbon/Nitrogen ratios and microbial lifeforms that help breakdown soil quickly and safely, but this book never went below a topical summary.
Even the worm farming concepts were only briefly touched upon.
The last 15 minutes of a 60 minute book were spent telling me not to invest too much of my savings in advertising if I wanted to start a Production worm farm...because it might not be too successful at first.... What??
I'm sorry, but this book was not the Complete guide to anything, let alone composting.
How could the performance have been better?
I thought the narrator was a computer for the first 20 minutes. Her pronunciation was so choppy, I didn't think it was a real person. This made everything completely distracting and hard to follow. It felt very unnatural.
