There was nothing wrong with the reading of this story and I know that one can't expect the best from writers of the late 19th century. But this one was really horribly racist. It left me with a very bad taste.
The story is good but the reader was appalling. I had to stop listening and read the book instead. Jesse Bernstein has a whiny voice, is terrible at at accents (and often picks a very jarring accent), can't pronounce greek words, does not seem to understand the descriptors 'angry' or 'silky' and was frankly racist in his representation of Ethan Nakamura. I would strongly suggest that these books be re recorded by someone with some talent, skill and education.
This is a really excellent story: interesting and twisty. It was also brilliantly read.
