.... the publishers who really should know better, think any good narrator will do.
Cameron Stewart may be an OK straight reader and he totally fails to capture Michael Dibdin's Zen.
Especially as this is Zen returning to Venice.
It is not a more complicated plot, it is not a darker view of the world.
It is the total failure of Cameron Stewart to capture the nuance, the humour, the niavety of our world weary chauvinist, the blatent hypocracy and corruption that flatens the story and characters.
What would he do to 'Cosi Fan Tutti' ( I shudder to think).?
So far no one can best Michael Kitchen as narrator for Dibdin's Zen.

A brilliant story which was cleverly written. The final bit when Zen was walking through Venice was too drawn out, but then it picked up again in the last 10 minutes. Intriguing ending - will it continue in following books?
Looking forward to the next one, they are really picking up. Great narration too
The plot is good and there is enough to keep you guessing but I didn't like the ending as much as others in the series. The guy who reads it is terrible at doing different voices and they all just sound really nasal.
