Highly rated story ? Killed by bad naration

I went for Metrophage having read good reviews of it else where and seeing it on a number of must read cyberpunk lists. How good it really is I'm not sure. The story in hindsight was fine, but not great, the main character was a tad flat, but what really ruined this for me was the narration. It is so bad and soulless that at first I thought it was computer generated. It was as if some automated system was being fed the lines. There was no emotion, just a flat, boring, single pace, reciting of words. It did improve later on, but not by much.

If you're tempted by this title and bounce between listening to audio books and reading the physical copies, do the latter.
