Let down by poor sound and lifeless narrator.

I liked the book but the way it was recorded made it painful to listen. The sound was absolutely butchered. Sounded as if recorded in a well. Seriously, I would've done a better job on my laptop. The narrator's voice was excruciatingly boring. I've never been so unsatisfied with an audiobook's performance.
