Good stories and lessons but horrible narration

The narrator sounds like a robot with weird intonation and just generally difficult to listen to.
He sounds like the guy reading his playscript in the purge episode of Rick and Morty.

An interesting story with sound financial advice

A selection of short stories from the perspective of people in Ancient Babylon.
Each with a financial lesson that is as relevant today as it was 5000 years ago.

For me, this particular audio book was a trial to listen to, as a combination of the language used (old English) and the speed of which the narrator speaks. This may just be me, but I thought I should mention it,

Fun stories, and great, basic financial advice for those seeking.

The only financial philosophy you need

The book is filled with gems, from chapter 4 onwards it really starts to show it's wisdom and timelessness. The ideas this book puts forward held true in Babylon and will hold true forever.

It's the simple, massively powerful philosophy's for finances that I have used since owning the book and will continue to use.

Very bad narration

The book is good, but the narrator reads as if he was a robot that never heard about punctuation.

WTF?!

Great performance!! Quite possibly the best Stephen Hawking impression I've ever heard - this narrator has a gift!!

I had to stop the book after 6 seconds, it was completely unbearable...

Seriously, WTF?

Horrible to listen to.

I wish I would have listened to the sample preview. I would have never downloaded this version. It sounds like a robot reading text. No emotion or emphasis in the narrators performance. I’m zoning out while I listen because his voice is so bland.

Oh my... could not listen anymore

I'm sorry, but I had to buy another copy of this from a different narrator. At first I thought something was wrong with my app, or maybe it was a computer generated speech. The content is good, but I could not survive listening to the rest of the book this way.

This is the most boring version ever

The content of this book is awesome, the story teaches great things. The performance is TERRIBLE! While listening to this version, the voice actor does not differentiate between two different people talking, or whether it’s a new paragraph or topic or anything. It all sounds like a run on sentence and it’s monotone. I got lost all the time because of these things, could tell what was happening most of the time.

A good read but very complex

It takes a while to understand the old English words in the book but once you the reader adapt to the verbiage it’s a good read.
