OMG who chose this narrator and why?!

One of the most beloved books I have in my library, naturally, I jumped at the chance of having an audio version...Titanic is nothing to this disaster: a funny and lyrical, sophisticated and lovely text turned into a shrill staccato parody. One of the most tactful and beautiful love scenes - into a hurried romp through a village market.

Where did they get that narrator? Who chose her - she is obviously seeing the text for the first time in her life, has no sense of humor, no idea of the variety of tones and accents, of the quiet intelligent humor that is one of the loveliest things about Sayers' books.

The worst possible thing is that she has already done nearly all the novels - so there is obviously no chance of getting another narration in the foreseeable future.

If you love Dorothy Sayers novels, DO NOT buy those books. It's better to re-read them yet another time rather than listening to this disaster.

excellent book

What made the experience of listening to Busman's Honeymoon the most enjoyable?

A great combination of light hearted murder mystery and romance . The narration is fine, except for a few spots of some poor editing near the beginning
