Ms. Imrie's vocal characterizations are strained, unnatural, and painful to listen to. Many of the voices are ill-fitted to the characters. The wizards sound like women and the women sound like crones who have smoked to excess for too many years. I will avoid audiobooks read by Ms. Imrie in the future.
I'm drawn to rich voices and Jim Dale's is wonderful. I'd love to hear more! And it's great to hear the original text of this old work.
