Good read, but it seems kind of monotone. Slow it down in spots, maybe go a little higher and a little lower on certain words and phrases. Joker's definitely a thinker, so make it seem like he's really putting a lot of thought behind the explanation of the master plan.
Great voice for Joker. Loved the rasp and tone.

In terms of the voice, it is a very good fit for the Joker, particularly in this story, with just the right amount of rasp and rumble.
However, I do agree that it is pretty even in the delivery, which is rather counter to the character I feel.
Remember, in The Killing Joke, The Joker's whole thrust is to prove a point, and the monologue should reflect that.
He is most assuredly insane, murderous, and incorrigible, but he utterly believes what he is saying and sincerely wants Batman to agree.
So there should be a bit more resolute persuasion, perhaps increasingly anger and desperation when he doesn't get a single shred of recognition from The Bat.
It is a good start though, keep up the practice man!
