I admire Richard Branson greatly and was looking forward to hearing his story. Disappointingly the narrator didn't inspire me one bit with a very odd rhythm to his reading often leaving vital information off the end of a sentence rendering it nonsensicle e.g. " My favourite time of day is evening. On Necker." as opposed to "My favourite time of day in evening on Necker" which I can only assume is what was written. His tone often adds an almost arrogant edge to RB's writing which I'm sure was not intended either...
Sort it out Adrian.
it sounded like it was being read by a computer programme for most of the time. Very odd cadence and missing of beats.
I'm guessing it was a rush job done in one take. I may be wrong, but it made it hard to listen to at some points.
That aside it is a very good and insightful book.
The book is great and the narrator is completely right for the part. You could think it was Richard Branson! I really enjoyed listening to it in the car to work
Having listened to other Richard Branson books with Richard Branson reading, I was looking forward to this. Apart from the fact the content is very similar to previous books, the reader is awful, completely monotone.
He doesn't blab on all about himself...which is refreshing. He talks about key life lessons in no-nonsense way. His writing just flows and the narration is good too. Buy it, you'll love it :)
