Emerson excites; this audiobook doesn't.
Emerson could be the great American thinker. His writings are exciting and inspiring. I can't wait to either read them or discuss them in a different context.
This is because the narrator of this sounds like a robot with accent set on New England. The flat reading is distracting and ultimately dulling. I see Mr. Killavey has done several audiobooks so maybe his reading is better on others, but it really kills the material here.
