Down to Earth with a CRASH!

I've been on a good run recently: authors new to me; first-time authors and most recently the wonderful Mr Fry doing Harry Potter. So for a change of pace I dug this out of my library and . . . well I'm not sure where to start.

I'm sure Audible didn't set out to produce something this bad. The production values seem high with varied music, sound effects and a full cast. Sadly most of them were more caricature than character and the story just seemed a bit daft.

Maybe others will find value in this but for me it was a rude awakening; not everything listed on Audible is worth listening to. Sorry, this one definitely didn't work for me.

Ridiculous accents

British accents were farcical, stilted performances by all, applied the story which may have been ok - it's hard to tell.
