I've been waiting for years for these books to come on the audio market, the story is a real boys own adventure, but why have they got this narrator, when he's doing an American character it's ok but when he try's a female one
It's laughable, a female British voice is dreadful, a female Australian voice OMG talk about Dick Van Dyke in Mary poppins.
It's a real shame they've really missed a trick here.
I still bought the trilogy through as I love JB's work.

I've not taken much notice of reviews to date but oh do I wish I had. Good story but shocking narration. The female characters are poor, as are British and Australian accents - so poor that the book is unlistenable - apologies to author but it just doesn't work

loved the story and will be getting the 2nd book directly. The general naration was great and read in a strong easy to listen to voice. The only thing that let the recording down was the accents. In particular the supposedly Australian and British voices, they are so bad as to be funny in what apart from an underlying cheekyness is not supposed to be a comedic novel. Would still thourougly recommend both the story and recording
Most of the time, the narrator is pretty good, but some of his accents are awful. I know the Australian accent can be tough for some people, with an Australian author you are going to have a lot of Australian listeners and I found it painful to listen to. I eventually almost got used to it, but it detracted from what is a great story.
