Really liked the story, but not the reader

After listening to the first Genghis story by Conn Iggulden, and getting used to how that book's reader pronounced names, including "Khan" pronounced as "Hon", stipulated by Conn as historically correct for the period in which Genghis lived, and "Bertay", instead of "Berta", for the name of Genghis' wife, I found myself distracted by Richard Ferrone's narration. He was excellent in the "Left Behind" series, but I wish he had listened to the first book, before narrating the second and third. Beyond narration, the story line is as solid as the first book, and more "civilized", because Genghis has aged, and his family is no longer living like abandoned animals. GREAT SERIES to follow. I'm impressed with the depth of Conn's research on the Mongol warriors.

Unfortunate choice of reader

I really enjoyed listening to the first book. I just started on the second. How disappointing - as other reviewers have noted, the reader is terrible. And, I'm sorry to say, I also purchased the third book at the same time, and it's the same reader. We'll see how it goes - hopefully I can filter out the voice and just listen to the words... or buy the hardcopy.
