Let down by the reading

For God's sake don't try to listen to this if you are British. The reader mispronounces every London placename mentioned (and unfortunately they are key to the story and recur often). I initially thought that he was going for verisimilitude, as the character narrating is American. Then I heard the supposedly English and Scots accents (the latter sounding more like someone born in New Delhi) and realised that this reader just has no business anywhere near a story set in the UK. I couldn't focus on the story because every 15 seconds he threw me out of the narrative by mangling something like 'Balham'.
