What did you like best about The Lost Book of the Grail? What did you like least?
The story was fine...a little misogynistic (a promiscuous male character who preys on women, romantic leads with a major age difference), but my issue was with the narration. The narrator has a lovely English accent, until he attempts an American accent. The main female character sounds like a 1930's gangster. I've lived in the U.S. for a long time, and I've never heard nineteen pronounced "nine-een." I barely made it through the reading.

I will start out by saying that I adored this novel. I thought it was a fantastic story. I have loved everything by Charlie Lovett so far. This novel was no exception. I really couldn’t put it down.
However, while the narrator was good, I found his impression of an American woman to be horrendous, since the rest of it was spoken as an older British gentleman. I definitely am glad that they didn’t bring in a second reader, but I found myself hoping more and more that she wouldn’t talk. The narrator really should have stuck to his British accent the whole time.
I will admit that things may have sounded worse to me than other readers, though, since I always listen at double speed.
I would still recommend this book in any form!
