    "Nice accent!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    We collected a few short audios for a road trip. The Elk was one of them. A nice little story and I did enjoy the British - European accent by this narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Hector Hugh Munro? Why or why not?

    sure


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Cathy Dobson?

    Sure. But I must say I prefer American English voices as the main narrator, as I can understand an American English dialect a tad more easily without straining at all. I love British dialects for character voices though.
