I have enjoyed the previous stories in this series, but out of the gate, I lost interest because of the change in narration. I'm sorry, but Tee Morris grating voice and his difficulty reading with feeling, with attention to phrasing, ruined the experience. Pip was noticeably better. but neither is a professional narration performer, and it glared.
Looking forward with hope for the previous narrators return,

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The interludes were distracting and I would rather that it had focused on the main characters.
What didn’t you like about Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine ’s performance?
It was nothing like the previous books. I thought that Books sounded more American than British and Eliza wasn't much better. That steampunk feel was simply gone. Overall it was just really bad narrating like they were brand new at it (maybe they were) and were working hard to stay in character.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. The narrator(s) were so distracting because they didn't sound the way the characters should that I simply stopped listening because I wasn't paying attention to the story. I thought this was a shame because I've loved all the Ministry of Peculiar Instances books.

Which means there will be more!!
Bring it on!!!
Steampunk with a hint of post-colonialism.
Great read but with a rather awkward two track storyline which you keep thing will converge but doesn't so the best is to hope for a quick follow on.
The most excellent MoPO! Can't wait for the next Welly & Eliza adventure! It can't come soon enough xx

stick to the original narrator
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
disappointment, and annoyance that I wasted my money
Any additional comments?
This is the first time i have done a review as i don't usually do them usually when i don't like them i put it down to a bad choice. this time they took a decent story and characters and ruined the whole thing by Pip and Tee reading it themselves.. The voices of the characters are appalling sorry guy's but stick to writing them you just don't have the right voices for reading. overall very disappointing did't even get to finish it as iIcan't stand listening to it any longer.
