Fun Space Opera, Poorly read

Space Opera by one of the classic authors of early sci-fi. Perhaps not the greatest story ever written, but an amusing story in a light beach-reading kind of way...if you like your stories fairly mindless and plots pretty straightforward, this is your book.

However, I found Harry Shaw's reading rather irritating. Kind of like a car salesman...maybe the style might be fitting for the work, but it grew monotonous over 6 hours.
