As I began to listen to this book, I was VERY distracted by the narrator -- I swear he breathes every 4-5 words. Either he has COPD or some other chronic respiratory issue, or a VERY affected reading style.
After about an hour, though, as another reviewer noted, I was so caught up in the story, that I stopped noticing the narrator.
But....every time I resume listening, I have to get used to it all over again.
Sharpe has given us a hysterically funny romp through British politics and marital problems among the country gentry. I chortled the whole way through. Be advised: there are mature themes (sexuality, in particular), and the liberal dropping of the F-bomb by one character in particular.
I must say that David Suchet truly brought all the eccentric, stereotypic British "country house set" characters to life brilliantly. I've been looking at the other Sharpe books, but none of them are narrated by Suchet, so I can't decide if I want to get them, as well.
