Very poor reading

3 out of 5 stars

Magda Allani sounded robotic, with little effect in the voices she tried to give each character. The novel is set in New York, yet Magda rarely pulled off an American accent - even resorting to a poor attempt of Cockney, for some unknown reason. Her accent is too heavy to portray the NY lilt of the era. Very poor choice of reader and it has taught me to always listen to a sample before I purchase.
