Reviews

Fair. Tough read in any format.

(4 stars)

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 delivery

(2 stars)

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

good story

(3.5 stars)

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.
