Rather breathy!

While I enjoyed this latest in the increasingly harrowing adventures of Anna Pigeon I felt that the quality of the audio recording was a bit lacking. Having listened to this on halfway decent headphones I was quite often distracted from the storyline by the breathy, wet noises that accompanied the reading as if the microphone was mere centimeters from the reader's lips. This was a first for me in a long history of listening to audiobooks and it was a bit disconcerting. While I recommend this book to faithful Nevada Barr followers, I encourage those of you with decent headphones to listen to it in the car where the distracting noises may be drowned out by engine noise.
