The narrator hard to understand

This is my favorite play by Ben Jonson. I will not review the play, as its long-standing acclaim through the years attests its greatness. My review will be on the narration. Although the reader does an excellent job with the poetry, it isn't easy to understand her accent. I had to follow along with the book to understand her words. I would suggest playing a sample to see if you can understand it before using your credit.
