loved the stories brought to life.
the narrator does a good job with the tone and emotion. but somehow the fact that a woman was voicing the mainly male casts of characters put me off a bit.
It's a real pity, but despite Jane McDowell's beautiful speaking voice, her really strange emphasis on words rather spoils the reading of this book. I'm hoping it doesn't persist in the longer books because I see they are all read by her. She sometimes gets the emphasis and intonation spot on, but far too often (about half the time) she shortens words that should be elongated, puts an odd emphasis on the wrong word in the sentence, pronounces names such as "Hartman" as two words ("hart" then "man"), or cuts short a word part way through a sentence, so that as a listener you are brought out of the story. This even happens when the narrative actually tells you how the sentence should be read! Really disappointing, particularly given the price.
