Poor delivery

(2 Sterne)

I found the delivery of the narrator to be too fast and not have enough pauses and emphasis. I had to stop the book and start over in the alternative version available here

(3,5 Sterne)

For a volunteer reader this was done pretty well. There are some issues with pacing and pronunciation, but nothing so bad that it detracts from the story. The audio quality is good and there is very little background noise, which is also nice.

Fair. Tough read in any format.

(4 Sterne)

The reader did a fair job. I was hoping this story would be easier to handle in audio format. It is still difficult to process. Most normal folks will still need to read a version with notes.

poor recording

(1 Sterne)

Good reader but his S and some T sounds are piercingly sharp. Had to stop listening after a few minutes. A somewhat common but avoidable error in recording methods.

good story

(3,5 Sterne)

Great story, although I read it once, listened to it, and then read a simplified version to make sure I reaaally got what was going on. narrator was fine.

very good
