Meryl Streep is the greatest actress of all time. She can convey a million words with the raise of an eyebrow. However, her narrating style is grating. It feels like she's trying to win an academy award with every sentence spoken, and she reads each sentence as if it has 3 or 4 periods in it. Pause, pause, pause. I just wanted a relaxing "read", but I ended up with nausea and a headache. I love Streep's voice, itself. Maybe she'll calm down and get better as time goes by. Anyway, I bet she'd make a wonderful narrator for children's books!
