Narrator is an idiot

What possessed Maxwell Caulfield to give John "Spud" Milton, an English boy from Durban, the accent of a boertjie farmer from the platteland? It's like giving Tom Sawyer a scots accent! Did they not listen to the audio book of the first book, "Spud"? Do the producers of South African novels do no research whatsoever?

It's amazing how a bad accent can ruin a perfectly good story.
