First let me say that I haven't listened to more than a few hours of this book. Maybe I'll write a review about the story when I'm done listening, but it looks like it'll be kindof a trial. To me, it sounds like what happened is that a highly directional mic was used to record this -probably standard M.O. for recording audiobooks- but it seems that Mr. Lee couldn't stay within the mic's optimal pickup range! It's like he was speaking directly into the mic for a second or two, and then turning away for five or six seconds. The result? It goes from sounding almost clipped to almost inaudible (this site's called Audible, not INaudible). I found it nearly impossible to listen to this while driving, since I couldn't hear the quiet parts atall well over the sound of my car's engine. I can't believe that whoever was supposed to be engineering this didn't catch it or was too lazy to fix it. And if Mr. Lee is a professional narrator, shouldn't he know how to use a microphone? I'll try a lower quality format like another reviewer suggested, hopefully that will help. But seriously, these books are professional products, and they shouldn't be released until problems like this are resolved.
