Compulsive listening!

Oliver J. Hembrough has nailed the narration of Warleggan. Maybe I've become accustomed to his female voices, especially that of Demelza, because this performance seemed very smooth and drew me in completely. I was able to immerse in the story without being jarred by male overtones for my romantic heroine. I think this is a very talented performance.

The storyline continues to be excellent, as we tumble through the Poldark family highs and lows (Ross, very bad, you fell of the pedestal there!). My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next instalment... Let it be soon (and let it be Mr Hembrough as narrator)!
