Good story problem narration
Thi story has good pace, great characters, lots of plot twists and a good measure of humour to keep the reader reading. But, it is read by the author and this lets it down. It sounds as though he is reading with a mouthful of drink which is very distracting from what is a very worthwhile and entertaining audio book.
I first read this series of books about 15 yrs ago they definitely stand up to a second visit. I wish they had a different reader
Yes with another narrator
