The Brother Cadfael series because the narrator has a lovely voice. The stories and images they conjure up are rich and interesting.


What about David Threlfall’s performance did you like?

His voice and pace of perfect. It does not annoy me as some of the narrators do. He's English and I prefer to listen to English rather than American narrators.
