Where does Damsel in Distress rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A really good story. I've liked all the Daisy Dalrymple stories but this is my favourite so far.

Any additional comments?

Some reviewers have commented on the accent of the narrators - I don't find either of them distracting or difficult to listen to. In fact, as both have a similar pronunciation I assume it's how the books are written or an attempt to be authentic to the 1920's settings.
