"A good book spoilt by a bad reader"
I bought this book without listening to the preview which I have to report was a mistake. I bought the book after listening to Taliesin: Pendragon Cyckle Book 1 read by Nadia May. I am afraid Frederick Davidson was a mistake as a narrator. He would be better suited to commenting on a game of Polo. He does not read with sympathy, more he reads as one who likes the sound of his own voice, thus spoiling the story.
If I could get a credit and give this book back, I would
Having read the first book as a paper back and then listening to the second i find the mispronunciation of Welsh words by the narrator hard work. So much so i am considering ditching the audio and getting hold of the book.
If mispronunciation of Welsh words by English speakers annoys you then this audio book is not for you.
I'm sure this isn't a reflection on the actual story its self as i thoroughly enjoyed the first.
