Nigel Davenport narrates "Birds, Beasts, and Relatives" very nicely, although I was a bit surprised at some of his character voicing, and there was some inconsistency with how the characters were voiced in "My Family and Other Animals".
Overall I believe current Durrell fans and anyone who enjoys well-crafted, very funny stories about 1930s-era family dynamics will enjoy this reading.
There are a few inconsistencies in the voicing by this narrator, but a pleasant listen overall.
Wyrd Sisters has a darker feel to the storyline, but that doesn't stop Mr. Pratchett from putting in plenty of humor. The character of Magrat develops nicely.
