This didn’t listen smoothly. It sounded as if the narrator recorded all the voices separately & then they were poorly spliced together —with too much space between voices/speakers — so that the dialogue didn’t flow. That, in turn, was exacerbated by too many “bumpkin” voices. In sum, the narration was annoying rather than captivating. Too bad because it’s a great, fun story.
