Sounds like it has been computer generated.
What disappointed you about Running Up That Hill?
This genuinely sounds like it's been generated by an AI voice system. Staccato and inflected at the wrong points. I downloaded as I have listened to Vassos on stage and obviously on the radio and he is very articulate.
Really didn't understand what was going on with it. Gave up after 15 minutes as it was so frustrating so can't vouch for whether it got better.
How did the narrator detract from the book?

Low audio quality at beginning
The audio quality at the beginning was awful. It improved enough to listen to the rest or I got used to it. The words were oddly clipped as if individually recorded, so I wondered if it was run through some software to remove pauses or something.
Anyway, other than the problems with the recording, I did enjoy hearing Vassos tell his own story about ultra running journeys. I had recently finished a paper copy of his previous book and it was great to hear this one. The format of his books has a bit of jumping around time wise and this is a bit harder to follow in the audio format but I was expecting it from the previous book.
He has interviews and tips from other runners which makes it feel really good value. He really makes you feel like you are there for the highs and lows and inspires me to put my trainers on and get out there as a beginning runner.
I hope hear more about his future running adventures.
