finally a narrator worth listening to

For years, I’ve been searching for a good audio version of Johanna Spyri’s Heidi. I've already purchased two other versions but neither is quite right. This historical classic needs a narrator who is expressive without being treacly or condescending and gets the comic elements of the book. Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy in Game of Thrones) nails it.
