Very Pleased

An excellent book, of course, and I was very pleased with this narrator. She handled all the voices well, even the male ones and I thought her Anna was brilliant, especially in the later scenes.

Strange recording

I thought I was 'hearing voices' in my head until I read other reviewers' points about the recording. The reader seems to have recorded this at home with her telly on in the background and with the stammering over many of the lines and names I found it difficult to listen to her otherwise lovely voice.
