Badly edited.

I am enjoying this book and have enjoyed the rest of the series. I really appreciate the author's ability to evoke the period with details about the culture, clothes, fashions, military equipment and the social attitudes.

My criticism for this book in the series concerns the editing. There are several places where the narrator repeats himself - word for word almost. I think this is where the narrator has a go at two takes of a pronunciation or intonation of a sentence but doesn't want to break his flow by stopping and leaves it to the editor to tidy up. This may also account for Paul Hecht's stilted style in places. The odd gaps are not his fault and should have been removed during editing.

Let down by narrator! Again!!

Paul Hecht is a reasonable narrator for many books I've listened to, but Bernie Gunter he IS NOT!!
Stilted and hesitant with often very poor pronunciation is very common, it's as though he's extremely uncomfortable reading the material.
I do hope these are re-recorded with the original narrator from the earlier books!
