There is a brief, preface read by a man at the beginning. Its hard to follow because theres a huge echo effect. Then a woman starts talking. No, not talking. Blubbering. She sobs fake, fake sobs and tries to narrate at the same time. I tried to listen for about 30 seconds, then fast forwarded a bit. Still sobbing. Fast forwarded again. STILL SOBBING! I think she wails through at least the first chapter. I dont know though. Her voice made me to angry to go any further. I exaggerate not.
