For the most part, I found this story pretty boring. It really didn’t catch my attention much until the last hour, when things finally seemed to go somewhere. Maybe part of that was the narrator, but I just couldn’t find myself paying attention for very long. The last hour~ is the only thing preventing me from giving it a “don’t read it” rating.

As for the narration, I’ve already said I wasn’t fond of it. It just sounded dull and dry. I didn’t have any issues telling who was speaking, which helped, but it didn’t do the story any flavors either. The narrator can’t tell the difference between “O” and zero, which I find very annoying. I also couldn’t tell if it was the story or the narrator, but at some point, he said “Stephen Hawkings”, which I also found annoying. If you’re going to name-drop somebody real, spell it right; or if you’re going to narrate it, don’t add letters to their name that doesn’t belong.
