How did this ever win so much acclaim? No detail is too minor too be left out. No character is too minor nor to have their entire biography included. No experiment that didn't lead anywhere is not described in agonizing detail. Really, you could lose 40% of the content and actually lose nothing. And could you get a narrator who has ever seen an equation, before?
The book itself might be great but the audio recording quality of this audiobook is sub-par. You really have to concentrate to not miss any information instead of relax and enjoy the book itself.
