Too painful to listen to

Why does this gentleman think he can perform British accents?!?! He is simply horrible and it makes this too painful to listen to. He is completely clueless as to regional accents of the UK and his attempts are just comically painful at best, racist and insulting at worst. This is the second book I've purchased that is narrated by this man and I have deleted both without finishing the first chapter. Even his "normal" reading is rather bizarre and simply makes it impossible to concentrate on the story rather than to how it's read.

As with other readings by this gentleman, he mispronounced quite a few words which again takes away from the story. It begins in the first sentences he reads. Simple words like "hosteler" which is pronounced with a silent "h" at the beginning. If a narrator is unfamiliar with a word it's a simple enough thing to look the word up for information on the correct pronunciation.

The way Mr. Harrison emphasises certain areas and ignores places where emphasis belongs also distracts from the story.

I purchased this without having listened to the sample and I've learned my lesson! I've also learned to avoid anything read by Mr. Harrison.
