A bit disapointed

Though as always there are qualitys in Le Guins work, this was a bit disapointing. It might be that Martinez, whom I believe has a god reading voice, overdoes the sweet, mystic tone in her voice and therefore makes this story more a romance than it actually is.

reader is BORING

I think this could be a good book, but I have tried to listen 3 times and get so lost in the boring, almost monotone reading that I can't get past an hour. I do not think I will try listening again (gifts is about the same)
