Painfully boring yet decent information
Story had so much promise but ended up being extremely droll. I couldn’t keep my interest - didn’t help that the narrator has a bland, monotone voice that hardly ever changes inflection. I think the voice actor is being forced to do this as a kind of community service. Like listening to Ben Stein read the back of medicine bottles for hours on end.

I didn’t get far. It was stilted and meandering. Not a coherent through line as much as lots of literary name dropping.
