Pronunciation!!

It would have helped if the narrator could pronounce quite a few of the words in this book, it was cringeworthy!!

Great story, some strange pronunciations

One of Bagley’s best plots, great characters. Lots of twists and turns.

I was distracted by a few odd pronunciations and accents as another reviewer mentioned.

But not enough to take away from the book itself. Well worth a listen.
