Imagine Stan Lee's reading it to me? Dude, that's an image in my head that's just not working for me...I always need to find the rhythm the book was written in.
With this one a somewhat pompous Stan Lee style works. Imagine he's reading it to you, or the narrator some epic fantasy, which this is.
I don't imagine what narratives sound like, though I do sometimes imagine what a character's voice sounds like (and what actor/actress he or she sounds most like).
