Dissappointing narrator

Would you try another book from John van de Ruit and/or Maxwell Caulfield?

Definitely a John van de Ruit but noit Maxwell Caulfield. After listening to Spud 1, narrated by the author himself, this was a real disappointment. Sorry.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Maxwell Caulfield?

John van der Ruit himself.

Great story, poor narration

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Maxwell Caulfield?

John van de Ruit himself!


Any additional comments?

A great story, as are all the Spud stories, but Maxwell Caulfield totally overdid the South African accent without bothering to check the pronunciation of unfamiliar (to him) local names - Transkei is NOT pronounced as "trans key", nor is Mooi River pronounced "mooey river" and there are many other examples. Mental note: in future read the reviews BEFORE you buy the book!
