Good listen: Narrater annoying

This was a good read but i am reminded why I prefer male narrators. Shari has a veri artificial annoying shaky voice that i had to press my way beyond. Her voice rises and falls at the wrong times...the worst trait for a narrator in my oppinion. Search for narration by Patricia Floyd or Susian Spain for an excellent delivery by a female.
