Truely AWFUL recording
I've been a subsriber of Audible for almost a year and have been impressed with everything - except this! It is a truely awful recording. The reader skips words, restarts sentences and has a dire delivery - if there was a way to get my money back on this one - I would. shame - as I love Pears books in general.

What a shame
I'm about an hour into this audiobook and for the first time in a longish history of listening to novels I am considering giving up. Nothing wrong with the writing or the plot. But why this narrator was chosen is completely beyond me. I think one of my kids could have read the story better. His reading is painfully, infuriatingly stilted. He seems to manufacture extra syllables in words. His emphasis and pauses within sentences often totally obscure the meaning. You spend the whole time focussed on how badly he is narrating, rather than getting lost in the story.
It really is unforgiveably bad. If I were Tim Pears, I'd sue.
