While overall performance is flawless one could argue this sort of book fits much better as a video or voiced over animation of sort, like the one they used for social media adverts. Original print had after all multiple images to showcase important bits. Its also surprising they used a voice actress to cover for Ginny Potter "live commentary" when they could just as well use Bonnie Wright and get extra scores for recognisable voice and consistency in the media.

In some parts of the book its clear poor narrator had a cold. Forcing him to read the book regardless was a bit cruel i think.
