I know I'm weird, but I can't listen to either of them. They each have a particular cadence to their voices (Guidell sort of speeds up toward the full stop at the end of sentences. Brick lifts the ends of his sentences so it's not quite a question) that once I start hearing I can't ignore. I used to like both, but now I actively avoid them, especially Brick. Overexposure, maybe?
My husband's solution to narrators he doesn't like is to speed up the playback. He tried it on a W.E.B. Griffin book to get through the part that catches new readers up on the plot thus far and decided he likes getting through the books quicker. Now he listens to nearly everything (except his beloved Discworld audios) as though Alvin the Chipmunk were narrating. It would fray my nerves, but he's happy.
