Most stilted dialogue I have ever heard

Would you try another book from David Morrell and/or David Regal?

While the book had an interesting premise, I had extreme difficulty getting past the stilted dialogue. Does the author think anyone really speaks this way? I think the narrator did what he could with the dialogue, but couldn't overcome the starched language. I would not order another book by Morrell.
