could have been really good

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A different narrator with a better grasp of the English language


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Mispronunciation , among to many others to list


Any additional comments?

A good item ruined by an atrocious reader, i get the feeling this is some sort of vanity project dreamed up by him the illustrious "Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot" which has got be the most pompous moniker i have ever seen in print , possibly rivalled only by Simon Sebag Montefiore
