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.

Disappointing Reader

I originally read this book in the "old school" paperback format and really enjoyed it. While the reader may be excellent for a lot of books, he really should stay away from attempting South African pronunciations and words. Being a South African I don't expect everyone to get it 100% right, but in this case it was severely off putting listening to some of the words being butchered. In many cases I couldn't even figure out the word being used without referring to the hard copy. Pity as it ruined an otherwise fun book.
