Kindle 2 text-to-voice -- As good as an audio CD?

I just spent 5 hours listening to a how-to book on my Kindle 2.0 while driving to San Francisco and back.

The Kindle 2.0  'text to voice' feature is excellent for how-to and nonfiction books.

I was quite surprised by how good "the voice" is for nonfiction. The kindle text-to-voice feature is a great way to get through your nonfiction reading while driving or flying.

The text-to-voice feature is less useful for fiction. It misses the emotional context.
