The plot was hard to follow and the characters hard to keep track of. It was really work to try to follow it, and I kept having to go back and re-listen to parts to figure out what was going on. I especially had trouble telling the female characters apart, and completely missed the existence of some of the male characters until the end. Some of the pronunciations were odd. For example, the narrator kept pronouncing "breathed" as two distinct syllables -- "bree-thed." And I have never before heard "delicacy" pronounced with the accent on the second syllable -- "de- LICK-a-see. I found the narrator's French accent irritating, too, although given the plot, I don't know how it could have been avoided. Maybe an all-purpose upper-class English accent would have been less intrusive, though the characters are not English.
