LOVED THE STORY DIDN'T ENJOY THE NARRATOR AT ALL
I REALLY ENJOYED THE THEME OF THIS STORY BUT COULDN'T CONTINUE
WITH THE BOOK BECAUSE THE NARRATOR REALLY IRRITATED ME.
AT TIMES I THOUGHT I WAS LISTENING TO ALLO ! ALLO !
I ONLY LISTENED TO A FEW CHAPTERS BEFORE ABANDONING THE BOOK.
I MAY HAVE TO BUY IT IN PAPERBACK.
I AM SURE DANIEL PHILLPOTT IS A THROUGHLY GOOD NARRATOR. HOWEVER, IN THIS INSTANCE I FOUND HIS VOICE VERY IRRITATING
