Dunsany is great. This reader/performance is...

...unfortunate. The narrator has a heavy accent that makes prolonged listening tiring. Along with that, the decision to add a heavy, loud echo every time one of the gods is named (which is almost every sentence, due to the mythic style of Dunsany's work) gets annoying quickly.

Again, I like Dunsany a lot, that's why I bought this audiobook. He's an acquired taste, though, and this performance won't help anyone acquire it.
