"He's written better."
The narration is not as bad as some people think (to me anyway). The book is based around Africa and once you accept that and that all the accents are African based, then its all good.
My main problem isn't with the voice, its those stupid pan-pipes that are there inbetween a lot of chapters. I would be quite happily listening away in my own little world and then that effin noise would come along and get me all riled up.
The book itself is not as good as his other work. At this stage I have listened to pretty much all his books available on Audible and this is probably the one I liked least, but still enjoyable for all that... just loose the pan pipes.
Despite the description, the audio quality was fine to my ears, but like another reviewer I did have a problem with the rustling pages and the introduction of what was going to happen in the coming chapter.
The book itself is good, but there are a couple of occasions where the author goes of on a complete tangent (for up to an hour if felt like) on an introduction to a new set of characters.
I think its poor audio production rather than quality that spoils this one for me.
