poorly read

I enjoyed the story but was disappointed in the reading of it, the narrator was full of stumbles and mistakes - and corrections. His voice was beautiful and mellifluous - I felt that the book being so long tested the narrator's ability.

Very poorly narrated!

What would have made Barnaby Rudge better?

While the book itself is what you'd expect from Charlie Dickens, unfortunately the narration will drive you mad ... it's clearly not edited, and the mistakes the reader makes come frequently. I tried several times to listen, but have given up.
