Sleepy read of the Great Murakami

By sputin13452 - Jun 01 2020
Read more
This podcast is often a pleasure in the reads and author interpretations. There needs to be a vetting for the reading authors unless they are hard to come by. Please weed out the vocal fries and mono-tonal readings. Washington’s reading of Murakami is painful in the slow monotone struggle of trailing sentences. It fails to capture the cadence of the story leaving one to feel tired. Was this the first time Brian was making an attempt to read this story. Boring.

Great discussions
