Enjoyable story... narration detracts

I found the story very engaging, realistic and informative (re post war Australia especially), however the narration significantly detracted from my understanding and absorption of the content. Ms Underwood sounds rather like she's a primary school student reciting an English composition. She uses minimal inflection and tone whilst persisting with a kind of naive, sing-song resonance which felt quite irritating to me. It's hard to believe that she is narrating her own work. This would definitely be best read as a hard copy book, unless someone like Caroline Lee or Kate Hood could be seconded to read it.
