    "Long-winded"

    Interesting story line and I was initially interested but rather long-winded. Get the abridged version if it is available.

    "Great book ruined by the wrong narrator"

    I was really looking forward to listening to this. Had read the book many years ago and know it to be a great book.
    Massively disappointed and really annoyed to have wasted a credit on this. For some crazy reason the publishers decided to have the book narrated by someone who sounds like a upper middle class Home Counties women in her fifties who pronounces room as 'rum'. It was WRONG WRONG WRONG for this character and might has well have been read by Pinky and Perky. Great book though. If I were you I would get a copy and actually read it.
