Narrators ruin the book

Only the female narrator is worth listening to. The others are either droning on in monotone or gasping for breath to the point of annoyance.

Very disappointed.

What a great bunch of stories.

Really enjoyed this historical cross section of spy stories. The mini introductions for each one were especially interesting giving context for sweep of the book. Loved the narration too. Immersive. Recommended!
