Can't rate content, can't listen to this voice
As interested as I am in this biography of Eleanor R, I can't listen to this recording. The voice of the author is very irritating to me - to other Audible friends as well. We had to let go of this one. Very disappointing to have paid for a book only to have to put it aside because of the poor presentation.
The publishers review should have included this flaw!!!
Much better to have a professional reader than an author's voice that's not trained for the job.

Good for a quick intro but...
Interesting but a little too abridged. I try to avoid abridgments. No full-length audio version is available. It's wonderful to hear the author's voice but she reads very quickly and without much inflection. Can't wait to read it for myself -- I've ordered the print version!
