Don't waist your time

It might be better in the original german, I don't know, not the narrators fault.

the narration didn't work for me

What did you like best about The Critique of Practical Reason? What did you like least?

I couldn't get past the first few minutes- the reading is too fast, and for my taste, the voice too high and a touch nasal. To be fair, I haven't read Kant yet, so maybe I just need a slower pace for my own digestion- reading it myself I will probably re-read portions several times. I'm not especially dense though, and I thought this would do for a first go at absorbing it, but I had to turn it off. Disappointing.
