    Any additional comments?

    One reviewer noted that the formality of the narrator, whose voice and approach seems to embody British Imperialism, distracted from the audiobook. I disagree. Richard Brown improves over time and worth listening to in all the three remaining Raj Quartet novels. His formal tone actually makes sense in light of the themes of the book, and his ability to do various characters voices grows significantly. Don't let his formal tone deter you. These books are superior and brilliant, and very well worth your time.
