What a shame the reader didn’t listen to the original audio performances of His Dark Materials, and match the pronunciation of the names. So far, Serafina Pekala and the mulefa are different, and it spoils a decent reading.

The English accent for the women is passable, but all the men are awful,almost caricatures,especially if you have listened to any of the other recordings.
Presumably this reader was used as so much of the story involves Americans, but definitely a mistake.
