Publisher's Summary

Can death be conquered? When Immanuel Winter set off to the banks of the Thames, he never thought his life would be changed forever. Emmeline Jardine, a young Spiritualist medium, drowns, but the potion given to Immanuel by his mother brings her back from the dead and irrevocably intertwines their souls. But Emmeline and Immanuel aren't the only ones aware of his ancestors' legacy. Understanding the potential of such an elixir, the ruthlessly ambitious Alastair Rose knows securing the mysteries of death will get him everything he desires: power, a title, but more importantly, dominion over the dead and the living. Unaware of what the dashing madman is capable of, Emmeline follows him deeper into a world of corrupt mediums, unscrupulous scientists, and murder. All that stands between Lord Rose and his prize is the boy who refuses to die, but both men know the key to stopping him lies within the girl who shares Immanuel's soul.

Simply atrocious pronunciation errors

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better narration.

Has The Gentleman Devil turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. It's turned me off this narrator until he's learned better pronunciation, though.

What didn’t you like about Patrick Oniyelu’s performance?

The narrator has taken no care to learn the correct pronunciation of many words in this book. From enduring the mispronunciation of the River Thames, to common words like devour, seance and a simple word like stomach being pronounced stomatch, I just don't know where to start.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Indifference or annoyance over the reading of it.

Any additional comments?

Did the audiobook company even listen to the audio recording? Seriously, there are so many fantastic narrators out there (you don't even have to be as fabulous as Kobna Holdbrook Smith or Jim Dale!) how could they let this poor man embarrass himself with these mispronunciations of common British English words?!
