I am a long time fan of Emma Lathen. I was delighted to see that Audible would be carrying her books.

However . . . .

This is quite possibly the worst recording I have ever purchased from Audible. Aside from the distracting (and in many places irrelevant) sound effects, the reader is wrong for these books. He sounds significantly older than the characters and he stumbles over simple words. These errors were not corrected by the sound editor, so evidently this reader was deemed acceptable to the production company.

I am so disappointed that the other books in this series are read by the same reader. I strongly recommend you listen to a sample of the book (either version, with/without sound effects) before purchase.

Would you consider the audio edition of 1222: The Hanne Wilhelmsen Novels, Book 8 to be better than the print version?

In English, please.

Narrator could not have been more perfect. A quiet book. More, please.
