One of my favorite narrators!

Mr. Cecil is one of my favorite narrators, and I’ve listened to many. I know many experienced and well educated listeners will agree with me that his talent is difficult to match.

Narrator Gets annoying

Way too old. You can hear the mouthful of old man dental work and saliva sloshing around in his pronunciations.

I also take issue with the latitude taken to assign a speech impediment (understandably more prevalent in Britain because like dentistry, speech pathology isn’t a thing) to the main character, Bingo Little. While clever in theory, it grew... VERY annoying. Very. Fast.

Or shall I say “Vewy. Fast.”
