What made the experience of listening to To Let the most enjoyable?

Narrator has a pleasing voice when interpreting the voices. Story moves forward quickly.

What did you like best about this story?

Having listened to the earlier two volumes, it was great to be able to continue. And to enter into the lives of the younger Forsytes.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Neil Hunt?

Yes.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Any additional comments?

Listened to the excellent narration of Martin Jarvis for the first two volumes and chose this narrator when there didn't appear to be a Jarvis reading for volume three. Listeners should note that this narrator keeps mispronouncing the name of the female lead throughout. Faithful readers of Galsworthy or viewers of both TV versions of THE FORSYTE SAGA know that her name --"Irene" -- is pronounced "I-REE-NEE," NOT "I-REEN." It is quite jarring to have this narrator make the error over and over again. And it distracts from an otherwise lovely interpretation of the novel.
