Excellent story, shame about the voices!

This, as the previous books is an excellent story. It leaves us desperate fir the next instalment. However, at one point I had to check that it was the same narrator- mostly it sounded like him, but certain characters now had very different voices and I'm not sure I understand why. Did the producer change, did no one listen to previous recordings to check?
BUT, I would still recommend the series and this book, just hoping that it's back on track next time. It's disconcerting when every time Arachne spoke I expected her to say "Now is the winter of our discontent ........" in that voice.

fabulous new installment with a few irritations

As usual I was on the edge of my seat with Alex's latest tale. Gildart Jackson has been a stellar narrator but I've a few niggles - bad enough to change Helicowan's accent in a previous book (both he and Landis originally sounded like Sean Connery) but he was a minor character. why did Morden's have to change though? Something also up with Arachne's voice. It's become more sinister and slightly lower and also more mechanical rather than her usual clipped enunciation. I know it sounds minor but Gildart's made these people alive to me! it's disconcerting.
