Cannot listen to this...
- S. K. Conaghan
narration is BAD
I have loved this story since childhood and looked forward to listening to it - unfortunately, the experience is rather painful.
I love the nonchalance of the whole and the subtle humor.
The voice itself is pleasant but the manner - it is quite bad. Stilted, broken, pompous, with strange accents and even more strange pauses - it seems the narrator just learned to read about 25 minutes ago and this is the very first book he ever reads aloud.
I'd change the narrator.
