Great material but poorly presented

Very interesting stories, many of which were new to me which was a nice surprise. Narrator, however, does a poor job and makes listening a tedious affair. She raises her voice not in pitch but in volume to emphasise points, and does this in a rhythmic cadence rather than emphasising the appropriate words. A different reader would have made this a fantastic audiobook.
