Poor reading

I have always liked Anne McCaffrey's stories, but the reading of this story is so poor that I have to make an effort to follow it. The reader makes constant smacking noises. He doesn't seem to know how to control his saliva or how to breath. He has some ability to vary voices, which is good. But he is no Jim Dale. When he reads as a dragon speaking, his voice production is hollow, as if through an echoing tunnel. That's a bit unconvincing. The reading presents a challenge to enjoying the story.

Narrator teeters on my nerves

The narration stretches for extra prominence by including coughing, gasping, sighing, mouth noises, and some whining voices.
The realistic/dramatic style teeters on getting on my nerves.
I won't be replaying this book even though it is an old favorite of mine.
