I should have read other reviews - and double-checked that the narrator was Patrick Tull. This reading is acceptable, but not as rich or well-read as the Tull version.
This narrator is absolutely pathetic, not fit to read a children's book to a Chinese speaking kindergarten class. Vance, Maturin IS IRISH, not some prattling high toned ninny best left to the English bad guys in Starwars spoofs or on flying circus. An Jack being voiced with a deep sort of mindless pompous accent. Dear God it burns the ears! Did the Vance even read the first book??? Further the narrative is so noninflected as to border on diesel engine monotone. What a true massacre of a most excellent book.
