Great book but the narration was choppy

The narration was choppy and read in a cadence like he was reading a children's book. He got better deeper into the book, but it was distracting and borhersome.

Painful listening to Narrator’s....

Droning, none expressionless reading. I mean very painful. His tone more suited for reading a quantum physics textbook. Other than this infliction, very eye opening material.
