narrators attempt at accents really poor. Turned Jon Shannow into Jason Statham doing a cockney hard man!!!

Had been looking forward to this Gemmell book for some time; it's long been one of my favourites and I pre-ordered it when it appeared some months ago. It's a great story and Shannow is one of Gemmell's best characters. This aside, I'm really disappointed with the narration and can honestly say that it is the worst I've listened to, bar none. Most of the accents are just utterly ridiculous - regional UK accents but all delivered in an incredibly irritating nasal whine. Some others are just comical - for some reason, known only to himself, the narrator adds speech impediments to the mix! The overall effect is at very best, distracting and at best, ruinous to the story. I certainly won't be buying the rest of the series (will just re-read them instead) and really doubt I'll even finish listening to this one. Stay away!
