The book, definitely. NOT the recording. The voices are laughable and cringe-inducing.
None that I can think of.
Absolutely not. Maybe I've been spoiled by the likes of Davina Porter (Outlander series) and Jim Dale (Harry Potter), but Ms. Battoe does not sound like she knows the first thing about narrating a book. Ms. Porter and Mr. Dale create unique voice identities for each character, so that you know who is talking just from the sound of the voice, and they are all believable. Ms. Battoe simply deepens her voice to different degrees, and the characters sound ridiculous.
OMG yes - I can't wait for the movie to come out.
Please revert back to the first version of the narration, or find someone else do it. Ms. Battoe is just not right for this project.
