Sounds like a robot
What didn’t you like about Larry McKeever’s performance?
This performance sounded like a computer was reading the book. I had trouble paying attention because the reading was so monotonous, but the story was interesting.

What would have made The Source better?
I’ve read most of James Michener’s books, on paper. The Source was my favorite, so although I seldom ever reread a book, this was a perfect Audible choice.
The book is as great as ever; however, the performance is so overdone that the distraction did not allow me to suspend disbelief and immerse myself into the story.
Larry McKeever is a bass baritone voice. The articulation borders on speech class drills and the deep roll offs are excessively fabricated. The reading is unconnected, and sound stress is not American English natural. For example, assuRED, laND, startED.
Many will love his voice. In my case, I became so distracted I returned the book after just a few hours. Apparently, I’m not alone.
