The flat, expressionless delivery by narrator Frederick Davidson ruins this beloved classic by making it a string of meaningless words, impossible to follow. A terrible disappointment.
I love Hamish, and enjoy listening and re-listening to these stories.
This is the first book I've listened to with this narrator, and his is neither the voice nor the accent to replace Mr. Malcolm as narrator. His reading lacks good phrasing and the rhythm and word stresses are often wrong, distracting from the story.
