    "Wouldn't be bad if the narration was good!"

    I'm only about halfway through this book, and I normally don't review at all, but there's something that's really irritating me. This is a book, written by an English author, and set in England, so why have they chosen an American narrator who can't even take the time to check how the British English words are pronounced?! Come on! Surely that's a rather big thing to overlook, especially in cases where mispronouncing the word actually changes it's meaning entirely!! I also don't understand why some English words have been substituted with their American English counterparts, i.e trousers for pants etc. To be honest this narrator really doesn't work for this book and the editor just doesn't work!!

    "Unsuited narrator"

    This narrator wasn't suited to this story. Very hard to get into the story when it is so jarring, as well as many mispronounced words.
