good book well read

(5 stars)

The first reader does have the quirk of inflection that the other reviewer noticed, but it was just funny to notice that she does that; it did not make it harder to understand. And she only read the first two sections.

(2 stars)

1st 2 Captures: torturous reading - distracts from text.

Well read

.....middle ages

(2 stars)

The text may have been ok but the narrator's voice had a most distracting inflexion at the end of every sentence. Not good.

Ian's review is right

This book could use a new reader.
