Awful, patronising narrator

A lot of the content is fascinating and thought-provoking.

However, the narrator sets my teeth on edge with her patronising tone and does a rubbish job of differentiating when she's reading quotations. She also barely attempts to give the characters within those quotations distinct voices.
