The book is great, but the audio book sounds like it was done in a box. The quality of this audio book reminds me the audios for 1930. If you want this book, do not get the audio book, it was very bad done. I was not able to listen to all the CDS 17, of them I listen to only 6 I cannot take it anymore.
