Subject: I'm listening to Codex Alera on audiobook
and every 3 chapters or so I keep hearing a horn blowing. It's pretty random, but it is on both of the books I've read so far. I can't tell if it's a mistake or not. An example is,

(...Miles' older Brother
There was bad blood between them?
[Horns Blow]
They had a falling out...)

Is it intentional? Either way it's pretty annoying.

Also, I hate to say it, but I absolutely hate it when I read an audiobook and its a female narrator. I think it's because they have such a short range of characters before they reach ridiculousness. Every villain has to have a grating sinister voice. Any type of power or commanding tone just sounds campy. When James Marsters was reading Dresden Files, and he shouted Fuego! I could feel the booming command. When Kate Reading tries to put power in her voice, it's just bad... like cartoon villain, pull on my mustache, bad.

Maybe I'm just a fan of Marsters, but this ain't my only comparison I'm going by.

I don't typo often, but when I do, I blame Swype.
