Poor choice of narrator

I listened to the first few minutes and also read the reviews before purchasing, normally I like to think that all is not lost but this is BAD the narrator is awful not only does he whisper the last word of practically every sentence but his voice is monotonous. Dreadfully appalling I am a Steven King fan but I can't get into the story because the narrators voice is hilarious. I find myself giggling inappropriately and loosing the thread of the story - not a good thing. So here I am an hour into this novel and I'm sorry to say whoever employed Frank Muller needs to read the reviews I rate it a miss totally through choice of narrator. I will however continue listening because I am a Steven King fan. My advise to Frank Muller 'don't give up your day job'.

Annoying narration

I bought this for a long journey, I love the book and have read it a couple of times & was looking forward to hearing it read to me. I managed about 5 minutes of the book before the narrators voice annoyed me to the point of turning it off. I listened to Under The Dome again, which is excellent and beautifully narrated. It's a great book, but horribly read.
