American English

I find it really it really irritating that Americans reading an essentially English text, set in England, cannot be bothered to pronounce words with an English accent. Mama is not pronounced momma and papa is not poppa or pappa. It was so annoying that I have stopped listening and will return the books. There must be a better reader out there. To be so distracted by poor reading ... the reader did not have enough expression in her voice... detracts from a good story which has lots of interesting social comment on a fascinating period in English history.

I love Elizabeth Gaskell

I listen to all three books back to back. There are three different narrators. The second narrator, for some reason, did not appeal to me as much as the first and the third. I can't really put my finger on why. I didn't take time to figure out what it was.
For the price, the quality of recording, and the quality of the book itself, this was an excellent deal and I'm very pleased with it.
