not easy to engage

I lasted into the preface. The prose was lumpy and repetitive. Key phrases were overused and that was just the preface.
I just know i wouldn't have lasted much longer. What with the combo of that and the Narration it wasn't easy to engage with this important book.
The narration lacked the gravitas required, with little or no cadence to emphasize what was happening. It couldnt have been easy with that script however.
If only we could bring back Laurence Olivier, he could bring historical solemnity and grandeur to reading a shopping list.
