      "can't stand the reader!"

      Her VOice RIses aND FAlls witH ALMOst EVery WOrd. like a bad poet or an actor trying to sound intelligent on Selected Shorts.

      SO hard to hear the story for the story! Her inflection totally washes over the prose - more interested in how she sounds than telling the story. Unfortunate!
