I am sorry. I've had this for nine months and cannot listen to this narrator. I cannot finish the book. From time to time I go back to it, but it's no good. The voice is simply not appropriate to the material. I do not wish to be unkind, so I will not enumerate all that bothers me. However, I am going to return the book, as it is clear I will get no use out of it.
This does not reflect on Audible, which is an excellent service.
Fritz Leiber is a writer's writer, one of the acknowledged masters in his field. I have yet to encounter a Leiber story that was less than fully satisfying. His style draws no attention to itself, but pulls the reader or listener into the narrative.

This fine book and reading are not improved by the addition of music. The drama the music is meant to represent or enhance is already present in the text, or it is not. Audio Connoisseur fails to grasp this fundamental fact. This is baffling.
To express it a different way: A book's music is in its words.
I will continue to listen to Audio Connoisseur's offerings despite this glaring flaw.
It is not about memorable moments. It is about being swept along on the tide of Pope's words.
On the top shelf.
Everything. Full marks from beginning to end.
I'd like to hear Rowe perform all of Proust.
