It's funny that this topic should be in this issue. I have been quazi studying it for some time. My own voice is very high and squeeky. I hate it. I have listened to many audiobooks and one thing that stands out no matter the range of voice is the intonation of the speaker. Yes, it may be true that we adore lower voices and feel comfort when listening, but we may also rid ourself of the curse if we learn to modulate.
