Poor choice of narrator

Enchanting, traditional stories.

What did you like best about this story?

Kept to the traditional text.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Why on Earth would anyone pick someone with a posh, English accent to read a book of Celtic fairy tales?Even when she knew the proper pronunciation it didn't sound right in her accent.
