I love this story, but the narrator pronounces some words in such a way as to make me feel like I just heard nails on a chalkboard (lived for instance). Fortunately these words are few and far between. He does alter his voice slightly for different characters so that is good.

I'm listening to this series again after reading the books years ago. Overall, the narrator is wonderful, but there is one thing that makes the vein in my temple throb every time I hear it.
The pronunciation of ravine is a soft A with the I pronounced as a hard E (rəˈvēn). Nowhere, in no dictionary, is it pronounced ravin with a soft I (or like one of the Foresaken in Wheel of Time, for those familiar). This isn't an uncommon English word, so how did it get past both the editors and producers, even if the narrator doesn't know how to pronounce it?!?
Once I get over that bucket of cold water to the face each time I hear it, I can get back into the narrative, but it always jolts me out of the story for a few minutes.
