Reader was sleep-inducing

The content is as expected, immutable. The narrator is perhaps the worst I've heard on an audiobook. Sonorous and thick, her voice has a narcoleptic quality.

I assume that there is some legal reason for this, but the constant repetition of the headings (at the start of each letter) was horribly grating.
