If this is what reading fiction sounded like in my head, I would burn all of the books. Even your books, just to be safe.
The narrator is a maniac with accents. Female characters sound like a man who has just been kicked in the balls, kids sound like a man who has been kicked in the balls a second time. Caricatures of French, German, Spanish, Southern, Irish etc, etc. Sometimes a character has an obnoxious accent for no reason at all.
Mr. Holland also alerts the listener to anything that might have a subtle humor, by using exaggeration and emphasis. I half expected him to ask me "did you get that? Eh? Eh? wink* wink*...it's funny, Wait I'll read it again..." Listening to these stories made me cringe, like when you see a man getting kicked in the balls, and I enjoy reading this writer's work.
Mr. Holland does have moments when he recedes, and gives the listener some personal space. "The Game" is read well
Just let the accents go, man. You don't need that crutch! You can do better than that! You ARE better than that.
I believe in you.

These absurd stories can only be taken in small doses. The language sparkles, but the stories are about little, if anything.
