Horrible Job Reading the book

I like Declan Hughes and have read two other "Ed Loy" books in print and would highly recommend them. However, Townsend does a HORRIFIC job reading the books. His regular first person narration and the voice he does for the protagonist is fine, but every other character in the book has a bizarre, deep voice, that makes it sound as if the reader is making them out to be mentally disadvantaged in the retelling of some very bad joke. It ruins the audio version of the book. Read the print version instead.

Ok if you wan an Ireland based story

Lots of characters. Not sure all are refer as they can serve to push the limits of the listener.

Also not sure I like the narrator taking ion different voices.
