I just had to write briefly to say that, while the reader has a wonderful speaking voice, his narrating style involves an inflection that lilts and trails off every time he comes across a period. With the exception of dialogue, it seems that every sentence he speaks ends with the same tone, dropping off exactly the same way each time; almost as if the sentence isn't completed and ends with an ellipses. Although the words are always clear and easy to understand, the constant and repeated rhythm quickly became annoying to me. If you are able to space out enough to just absorb the story without paying too much attention to the sound of it, it becomes less obvious, but I found myself irritated within the first four minutes.
