Great novel, great interpretation. The way the narrator adapts his tone and the pace of his speech to fit every step of the IQ ladder the hero climbs is perfectly done. A must read.

Couldn't get interested in the story

I think it was because of the monotone voice of the reader, I simply couldn't start to be interested in this. I would press play, listen for half an hour, get drowsy because of the absolute lack of tone of the reader and then press pause. The next day I would try again, listen for half an hour, get drowsy, pause. The day after it would be the same, and the day after it, and the day after it, until the end of the book.

Everyone is different I guess but I've listened to more than a hundred audiobooks in my life and I think the reader's performance -and I would even say acting sometimes- is as important as the quality of the story. And monochord doesn't fit me, I mean it's not horrible here, I've heard worse, but I've heard a lot better.
