Great voice, needs a director and editor

Tolstoy- fantastic. This is the Maud translation, also great. The narrator Keith Higinbotham has a wonderful voice, which was why I chose this recording. However, directing and editing were lacking, resulting in mistakes that should have been polished out -- repeated lines, stumbles, pronunciation. I'd love to hear the narrator with a better production team.
