Unable to listen
I based my purchase of this book on reviews of the PAPER book. I should have listened to samples first (almost always do!) but I love the idea of a good adventure that was 26 hours long.
ABSOLUTELY the worst narration I've ever encountered. Mr Bull made the first 30 minutes agony. I kept hoping it would get better but it did not.
I took the unprecedented step of calling customer service and asking that this book be removed from my library.
If you think you might want to listen to this I STRONGLY urge you to listen to the sample first. Proceed with caution.

After reading the other reviews, I felt I just had to comment. I listened to the first book (White Rhino Hotel) from the library, loved it, and I just had to get my hands on the next part of the trilogy, which I found just as fascinating. Mr. Williams narrating style took a little time to get used to, but after awhile I found myself really lost in the story. Now I really love to listen to him. I felt like I was really in Africa, and these books make me long to go there myself. These are some of the best audiobooks I've listened to!
