Amazing book, terribly narrated

From both a historical and a philosophical perspective, this book is a masterpiece. But this audiobook does not do it justice.

The narrator has a deep and smooth, buttery voice. Unfortunately he butchers almost every paragraph, starting and stopping in the middle of sentences, emphasizing the wrong words (to a degree where it actually bungles the meaning of the author's train of thought)...
Additionally, there is barely any pause delineating the individual paragraphs. In the original work, each paragraph is a separate thought, possibly written days after the one before. In this rendition, they are all read as if they were part of the same paragraph, which waters down the significance of all of them.

Overall I am very disappointed that such a great work got such an unceremonious treatment.

Inhalt top, aber Leser müsste besser sein.

Leider schwer zu folgen, da der Sprecher eine sehr eigenartige Intonation verwendet.
Ansonsten sind die stoischen Ansichten sehr bereichernd.
