What did you like best about The Lost Book of the Grail? What did you like least?
The story was fine...a little misogynistic (a promiscuous male character who preys on women, romantic leads with a major age difference), but my issue was with the narration. The narrator has a lovely English accent, until he attempts an American accent. The main female character sounds like a 1930's gangster. I've lived in the U.S. for a long time, and I've never heard nineteen pronounced "nine-een." I barely made it through the reading.

Lovett's books get better, but gosh -- the reader? Just fine with the British accent but the American female, an interesting character, is cheapened by an accent that makes her sound like a cast member of "Guys and Dolls". Where in America is the number 18 pronounced "aydeen" and where do they say "Ladden" for "Latin"? Not in North Carolina, I can assure you.
I enjoyed this story with its twists and turns. Likeable characters and some very funny parts. I look forward to other audiobooks by this author.
