    "Good adventure"

    The Sharpe books are lots of fun (not deep) and Tull is a fine narrator. I'm wondering if there something missing from this audio book, however. In part 2 of the book (on my iPOD), the characters start discussing someone's death and, from the importance of the event, I would have thought we would have heard about it in detail as it occurred. This seemed out of keeping with the generally linear Sharpe books. Did I somehow fail to download a chapter or two?

    "Bad Narrator"

    I really enjoy the Sharpe books, don't get me wrong. But I had to go back and read this one in print. The narration for me was totally unintelligible.

    "No more Tull, PLEASE"

    I've listened to the entire series except for a couple which are not offered. This version of Sharpe's Trafalgar is only available "read by Tull". If I could have found another read by Frederick Davidson, I would have gladly erased this copy, and finished the book via Davidson.
