The story is great - good detective/noir/magic yarn, some of it based off the most famous detective/noir stories (Holmes, Christie, Hammett).
Victor must learn what punctuation is all about.
He stops in middle of sentences, stress wrong words, etc.
"great stories but appalling narration"
As well as reading in a way that misses the sense, the narrator can be relied upon to mispronounce English, French, Irish ... It grates from the first, but becomes really irritating by the end.
A different narrator!
