I seem to be in the minority here, but I particularly enjoyed the narrator. There was occasional inconsistency in the character voices, but over all it was lovely to listen too. She has a distinct Scottish accent which added to the story.
I'll admit that I read and enjoyed this book before getting the audio book, and I enjoyed it very much, but I am a fan of Lynsay Sands' books.
The author did a wonderful job writing an entertaining history of the English language and the narrator truly adds to the experience. Hearing the comparisons between English words to the words in other languages from which they evolved is wonderful. I'll admit that as an American I'm learning a fair amount of British history along the way as well.
