The book is not bad. However, the narrator gets on your nerves. The book is set in London. The narrator is from Northern England (Yorkshire most likely.) It started grating on my nerves from the second sentence she spoke.
For an american comparison... It would be like having a story set in New York City and having someone from the South (with a heavy southern accent) narrating the story and thus turning all the characters in NYC into Southerners with Southern accents. Even if you can't distinguish between the different English accents, you'll be able to tell instantly that there's something 'off' about the narration that will bother the listener throughout the story.
All Accents have their place. But a professional voice over artist should be able to correctly speak in the tongue of the characters. I'm surprised that someone from England cannot mimick a London accent. Poor casting...
