A female narrator impersonating men
Another good Howard Fast yarn, but the narration of The Establishment is terrible. Correction: the narration is pretty good, by the same narrator that did Second Generation. But in that audiobook each character had his or her respective actor or actress for all the voices. That was great! I use Whyspersinc and actually preferred listening to reading because of this. But on this audio book, the same female narrator tries almost humorously (good call by other reviewer saying it sounds like chipmunks) doing the supposedly he-man voice of Dan Lavette and all the other male characters. It's beyond distracting.
