It's up to the Narrator

The Scarlet Pimpernel is a fantastic book however Walter Zimmerman reads this beautiful book like he's reading the nightly news report... it's so annoying if it weren't on my ipod I'd have thrown it at the wall. I am an avid audiobook listener and I will never buy another book narrated by this person.
