great book - inexperienced narrator

This is a really fun story. Percy's character is so likeable. the narrator has a great French accent, but besides that, was kind of monotone. This so far is the only option I saw to be able to listen to this book, so it was fine, but I might recommend just reading the book rather than listening to it in that case.
