Shame about the voices...

I enjoy the Darwin stories but the narrators voices were off putting- especially the fake accents. Will opt to read this book instead.

LOL...what?

The accents really are hilariously horrendous and annoying. I read the other reviews and thought I could get over it...not sure I can.

Trite Amateur Junk

Absolutely bad. The incidents are common, every day mistakes. The narrators are terrible amateurs. There is no excuse for Audible not vetting this junk.

Annoying narration

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Female narrator was very whiny. Not using Southpark like accents for tales from other countries

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Have not got to the end yet!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

using Southpark like accents for tales from other countries
Whiny annoying voice
