Why would they not use Ralph Cosham to narrate this book. The major reason that I preferred obtaining Louise Penny book in Audible format is because of the magical quality of Ralph Cosham's voice gives to the stories. That voice lifts the story above being just a narrated story to being a gateway to Three Pines.
Although the story itself was up to the fantastic level that Penny always creates, the unexpected nature of Adam Sims voice (good in it's own right, but incongruant to the Three Pines Mysteries) made the overall quality of this audible edition disquiet.
I was unsure when I started listening, hearing a lot of russian names and having difficulty following the plot line. But then in a jolt I was caught up in a story line that not only gave great detail to four different eras, but to four main characters, and then some. It was a thrill being allowed to follow these characters, on both sides, as they worked their way through such scary and uncertain times. I did not live through these times, but I have a better understanding of what was happening then, both in front of and behind the curtains.
