Reasonable story ruined by one of the readers
Choosing a different female reader
Didn't have one, too distracted.
They had clearly had no guidance and/or heard each other's reading. The character Bessie, the maid, has a normal sparky cockney sparrow tone when voiced by Laurence Kennedy, but she became a slow-witted idiot when read by Maggie Mash. This made following and enjoying the story impossible. Almost all Maggie Mash's characters were very badly handled, complete ly OTT. Very annoying.
Re-record it, or stop selling it!
Laboured performance by narrators!
I have enjoyed the listening but may think twice about having another book with the same narrators
I like the concept of the two narrators, husband and wife in this case, I just wish they had communicated with each other at the speed of a normal ocnversation
I listen to books while driving; when this book was on I had a desire to use my right foot to try to hurry it along. I thought the storyline a good one but the narration was so laboured that at times it really irritated. It is as if in 19th century Britain, everyone spoke at half the speed they do today.
Yes, but only just.
