Interesting book ruined by weird narration

I will have to purchase the written version of this book of what is an interesting text. Sadly the narration is so unbearable and difficult to listen to, I could net even get through thirty minutes of the audiobook. Shame really.

A 'Good' Book with Laughable Narration.

The book itself is interesting but the narrator is so over dramatic and so pseudo creepy that it's remeniscent of the one fake satanist kid in schools that tries to convince the bullies that he can hex them. Something between scene chewing actor and a parody of b movie horror villians. You might be able to get through it but boy it is almost hilarious.

Distracting narration

The narration is very off-putting and distracting. Feels like he's trying to be too dramatic

nicely read

A wonderful book, read with enthusiasm and passion. Relaxing enough to listen to at night and doze off

Narrator is horrible!

What disappointed you about Aleister Crowley's Liber Al vel Legis?

I couldn't stand listening to this narrator, I was hoping I could listen to the Book of the Law as I work but this guy ruined it. He sounds like he's more interested in listening to himself sound "powerful" rather than provide a quality audio book, I don't know how this got on audible.

What didn’t you like about Dennis Logan’s performance?

Everything.

good story

His voice is weird but he helps Aleister Crowley come off well and pronounces words correctly. also I'm not sure if they added in FX in certain parts of the reading but I didn't like the deepness of his voice.. definitely not...

The narration perfectly fits the style.

The narrator fits Crowley's style perfectly and made it extremely enjoyable to listen to. It's worth the price.

Do as thou wilt; but forr real.

The way this book is read is a great aphorism for the wrong concept and understanding of Crowley. The interpretation is gorey to say the least. The content is freaking OutStanding and worthy of cult.

Just as expected

The narrator is fine. Lots of reviews taking issue with him. I think he did a fine job. The story? It’s a classic, one can listen to it over and over and it will still be an unsolved mystery.

Very misleading title

I was expecting a book about the different laws in more detailed. I was very disappointed.

A cavalcade of vocal fry.

I was elated to see some of Crowley's work on audible but it was a bit painful making it through this one . Keep Crowley's work coming, but dial the vocal fry WAAAAAY back. Other than that, the delivery and mixing were superb!
