    This is journalism not an Anita Shreve novel.

    This was my first listen of the magazine's audio version. While I really appreciated being able to finish The New Yorker as I drove, I found the choice of narrator for Tad Friend's article about Andrew Stanton absolutely inappropriate and annoying. It was so bad that I had to stop listening and skip to the next article. The female narrator maintained the exact same, predictable cadence no matter what the content - even when it was clear there should have been change in stress or emotion. The tone of the article was affected as a result. I'll have to finish that article in the print version.

    Short on features, missing Japan story

    While grateful for having some New Yorker content beautifully read, I was disappointed that the feature on radiation in Japan, a major offering, was not offered. Would very much encourage the offering of just one additional feature story as a routine benefit.
