The narrator's accent keeps going in and out. It's actually confusing--you lose track of who's talking. Marlow should have a cockney-type accent, but it only holds up for about half a sentence.

The narration of this novel is intolerably bad. Scott Brick employs a transparently fake, inconsistent and downright comical accent throughout the book. Coupled by his typical overly dramatic interpretation and excessively sing-songy cadence, it is nearly impossible to focus on the actual substance of the book. Mr. Brick appears to be a narrator that listeners either love or hate. I have tolerated his narration (just barely) on a few non-fiction books and this was my first attempt to listen to him narrate fiction. I can say without any reservation that I will never purchase another book narrated by Mr. Brick. I fail to understand why he receives any accolades for his narration or why any author would allow their work to be narrated by a narrator who provokes such strong reactions, both positive and negative, from listeners. There are five other versions of this book on Audible, narrated by others -- I regret not purchasing any of those other versions instead of this version and suggest you not make the same mistake.
