excellent

Excellent reading of classic novel. Sayer worked in advertising herself so the description of the workplace is accurate

Pure Sayers ruined by pronunciation of Bredon

What made the experience of listening to Murder Must Advertise the most enjoyable?

The strength of Sayers plotting and the twists of the plot.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

If the narrator had listened to someone actually reading On Bredon Hill.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I could not come to grips with Wimseys's name pronounced as "breddon". It is pronounced "Breedun" . Spend two minutes finding On Bredon Hill - which is referred to in the text, making this an unforgivable error- on YouTube. It grated so very much. If the narrator didn't know or research this, then the editor should have. A pathetic and unnecessary mistake which had me clenching my fists on each hearing. Listen to the dramatised version with Ian Carmichael. A brilliant production and the one I should have bought.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Any additional comments?

Get the editors to do their homework.

Nope

Was excited to see this unabridged version appear as the BBC adaptation is missing some of the finer details, oh how disappointed I am.

The narrator is terrible, cut glass pronunciation without the appreciation of a character’s character or the ability to voice any nuance such as sarcasm.

And it’s Said Breedon not Bread On. had no one taking an active role in the production even considered doing some research?

Brilliant all around

Lord Peter will always be superb (and incredibly sexy!). Sayers' cricket match is fiction's best. What I don't understand is the general braying about Jane McDowell's narration. I have many audible books and her voice is up with the best. For a woman to narrate male characters is just as plausible as the reverse. Bravo all around.
