Let down by narrator.

I wished I'd read this..opposed to listened to it via Audible. The woman narrating has the most awful robotic monotone voice ever. She truly is awful. The tone and lilt in her voice are all wrong. You have to hear her to believe it though. If you can overcome her voice, the book itself is horrifying but at the same time awe-inspiring, a first had account of what happened to millions of Jews during WWII. A story that should never be forgotten.
