    "Brilliant story destroyed by poor narration!"

    I have loved this story since childhood, and find myself bitterly dissapointed in this rendition! The narraton of this story is beyond abysmal!

    The story is set in Wales, so you'd think that finding a narrator who is even somewhat capable of reading in a Welsh accent would have been a consideration for the production team. The narrator's accent jumps wildly between a poor attempt at a south wales lilt to something akin to the fake Indian accents last heard on Carry on up the Khyber! There is no continuity and all the characters are made to sound stupid by the lack of ability of the narrator to stick to one accent. I found myself laughing at every new crap Welsh accent as they sauntered from Caernarfon to Calcutta via Cardiff. This story quickly becomes a chore to listen to, which is a shame as it was bought for my daughter to listen to when we are in the car. For the first time ever, she ahas asked for a story to be switched off!

    When you consider some of the other Audible titles and the production that goes into them (the How to Train Your Dragin titles spring to mind), would hiring a narrator from the country where a book is set be such a hardship? If not, why not read the story in a neutral accent? It wouldn't lose anything in the reading and would be better than the unappealing dross that they have produced for Snow Spider. If I had a way of getting my money back for this story, I would.

    A real shame as I'd urge anyone to read this story and the following books. Even watching the ITV adaptation is better than this. Poor show Audible!
