I've been a Ruth Rendell fan for a long time, but this reader makes it a hard listen for me. Not a good choice for this type of novel.
Not that I expected anything different from Ken Follett, but this was a wonderful book and I enjoyed every minute of it. John Lee did a terrific job, too.
if not for the narration. The monotone and the mispronunciation ruined it for me.
I too, was deeply disappointed in this book. After Duma Key - not all that long ago - I expected better. The narrator pushed that disappointment up several notches. In fact, I was so offended by the narration, I had a hard time being fair to the story.
