Bad narration.

Although the narration was clear the pronunciation of curtain words were way off. The choppy reading was irritating and the voice itself graded on my nerves. Then there's the fact that the voice seemed to be cut in a multitude of places as though rerecorded.

Narration Still Ruining a Great Book

I loved this book when it first came out, so I purchased the trilogy on Audible. That was a huge waste of money. It's the third book, and the narrator is still saying Fuh-folk when 5 seconds on the internet will tell you Ffolk is pronounced Folk. Total waste of money!

Great story, terrible narration

The narrator doesn't seem to understand vast areas of the spoken English language. 'Subsequent' pronounced as 'Subb-See-Qwent' is one amongst many mis-pronounced words. Also, it seems there are edited areas imported into the narrative after the main recording, as the voice, levels and volume are jarringly different.

Please Audible... better vetting of voice actors.

Apart from the occasionally dodgy narration, the story itself is great and epic. Very enjoyable.
