I was relatively excited to happen upon this "acclaimed new translation" of Goethe by Stanley Corngold. While I'm not a big fan of Goethe or the espistolary overwrought outpourings of the suicidal Young Werther and am not familiar with the work of Stanley Corngold, the publisher and others I respect seem to believe this is a worthy translation to render the Goethe novel more accessible to the unfamiliar.
So, why is it that the publisher hires an audible director and narrator/actor who make Werther sound like a computer program in the initial stages of conquering Earth?
Just awful. A near-travesty for Corngold and for audible listeners.

The narration truly gives life to the story which is lovely and tragic. Incredible haunting.
