I'm normally not a fan of this genre but I was blown away by this story. The characters were so diverse, rich and vivid and it was both suspenseful and heartbreaking. The narrator was brilliant - she really sensitively brought the characters to life in her lovely rich voice and she was very believable with her british accent. I'm from London so I'm a pretty tough judge of accents. What a fantastic listening experience!
The story was good, however I am sure there are sufficient genuine English narrators around that could have done this book. This American's attempt at an English accent was woeful and the pronunciation of several places and colloquialisms not even close.
Appalling English accent
