Story is awesome, but please. PLEASE get a reader who knows the correct pronunciation of words...if the story itself wasn't so awesome, I would have stopped listening after the 3rd error...

Story = A+ Narrator = D
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
The story is a great story based in magic & mysticism and the elements that tie the characters together are intriguing and well thought out.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Brothers?
Sadly in the audio performance the flaws of the narrator are the points that stand out the most & the 1 phrase: "Don't kill mah babies!" still resonates with me & not for the impact of the line itself, but for the delivery by the reader.
How could the performance have been better?
The performance, in my opinion, would have been better if the producers would have stuck to the 3 R's...Rehearsal, rehearsal, rehearsal. There were simple things that could have been changed, simple pronunciations that were nowhere near the actual words as well as some of the characterizations being not quite on the mark for me.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
With a different narrator this would have been an enthralling must hear book that would have kept my ear-buds in my ears for hours.
Any additional comments?
Keep well in mind that this is a great book and if you can get around the various mishaps that happen throughout the reading then you'll find it greatly rewarding. Barnes is a very talented writer and well worth the interest and the investment of your time.
