Horrible recording. Not only was the performance sloppy but there was a chapter from huckleberry Finn inserted into the middle

Is there anything you would change about this book?
I have been trying to get through this book for quite a while. I thought that an inexpensive audio version might help - and it did. I've now finished the book. But I'm pretty sure that chapter 32 was actually Huckleberry Finn, not Age of Innocence. I'd love the actual chapter 32 next time.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Age of Innocence?
Well, the restraint of passion in the service of what one thinks is right is always memorable.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alan Munro?
I found Alan Munro difficult. I had to imagine him as a well-meaning friend, and this worked pretty well because I do love to be read to. But he stumbled over simple sentences, mispronounced critical words. He was lovable, but really didn't bring the narrative to life.
Any additional comments?
Give me chapter 32 : )

I stuck with it but I found it a very unsatisfactory story and the droning voice of Alan Munro difficult to listen to. As it was written by a woman I would have liked the reading to have been carried out by a woman. This would not necessarily have made the storyline any less tedious, however.

narrator was so boring, very flat delivery, no decent characterisation. I will never buy one of his readings again.
