I love this book. I think it is one of the most beautiful books written (except when Tolstoy gets into meandering analysis of military and political events). I was very disappointed in the reading. Perhaps I want a reader to maintain his own voice rather than trying to imitate the voice of another gender (for the same reason I don't like Jim Dale's rendition of the Harry Potter books) because in doing to I can't help hearing the flaw. Without that imitation I could continue to suspend disbelief but the faulty voice jars me out of the immersion in the book and I lose interest in it due to a critical change. Just read the book without trying to play actor or actress. The inflections are fine but the imitation of the character is irritating.
