No, I’d prefer to have read the book. The narrator has a lovely British accent but delivers all lies in the same voice and does not know how to pronounce any of the non English words or phrases. These shortcomings seriously detract from the audio book.
The story has a charming if unbelieveable aspect.
Prounouciation errors and lack of ability to read in any but his own voice.
Sadie Rosemblum, she seemed the most real and the most clearly drawn.
As noted by other reviews, the map lore overtook the story, and read in a rather singsong voice, it lead to lack of interest rather than learning.
Couldn’t ask for more. The story is excellent, the narrator is excellent and in all, a pleasure to listen to, fun, good plot and a generally likeable mystery.
It’s so hard to get past the stilted narration, that the story becomes close to irrelevant. Perhaps good for someone learning English as a second language.
The narration is so stilted that the words are separated as if they were meaningless.
with better narration, the southern aspect would have been more plausible and then possibly, the story would have hung together much better.
