Tell Me A Story?

I am looking for a tablet that will be able to download books/stories and read them to me.

The Amazon Kindle obviously leaps to mind but I want to be able to customise the voice(s).

I have looked on the RNIB website that gives examples of text to speech voices but they all sound (slightly) mechanical.

Any suggestions based on experience, please?

If you can afford it get yourself an audible subscription the stories are read either by the author, a 'famous' person or narrators and bring the book to life. There is a huge range of books on all manner of subjects and well worth the money.
