Fascinating book, but the reading is dire

I love this book, the content is really fascinating but I am at my wit’s end with the reading of it. I really want to listen, but the narration is so monotone that it is next to impossible to stay focused on what’s being said. I’m finding that I actually have to speak along with it in order to concentrate. The narrator has a nice voice but it’s more suited to a hypnotherapy script, and I am just drifting off into other thoughts constantly and have to keep going back 30-60 seconds to listen again. It’s very frustrating because the book itself is so interesting!

Really loved it

It was such an interesting book, very thought-provoking and inspiring. I loved the way it was written too, as if it came straight from the heart, like a friend was telling of a fascinating adventure. I listened to it on Audible and really enjoyed the narrative and voice of the author, who spoke calmly and slowly, with a lovely rich tone, so that the listener had time to take what was said. Wonderful - I didn't want it to end.
