Voice actors don't match the characters

The actors sound constantly out of breath and stumbling, like overly dramatic teenagers or Michael Cera. Not at all fitting for the figures King MacBeth and Banquo. Completely ruins the story hearing their uneven breaths and insecure delivery.

Especially after listening to the Tempest, narrated by Ian McKellen, this audio book sounds completely amateur .

Couldn't make it past the first thirty minutes.

Too many American accents

Look, it was alright. The witches were good! Although some actors put on English accents, the occasional American accent really grates. I'm sorry but Macbeth should be done with English accents not American. just my view I know, but it ruined my enjoyment. Sorry.
