Robotic narration

It's beyond me how a professional narrator could be this terrible. Strangely, when she is acting the roles of the characters she comes alive but when she speaks the internal monologue of the main character she sounds like a drone. It's so bad it's funny sometimes.
Highly suggest listening to a sample before buying!!
