Great narration of a fantastic story!

I always love Simon Vance as a narrator. He has a very pleasant voice and does a good job at distinguishing between characters. However, there was a single chapter where he seemed to forget that Sir Henry didn’t have an English accent - it threw me off while listening. Otherwise, though, a very enjoyable listen. I hadn’t revisited this story in a very long time and I’m glad I decided to listen to it this time around!

Unfortunate

I normally like Simon Vance as a narrator, but this certainly was an exception on this book. It is a wonderful book that was ruined by a horrible, dry, boring narrator.
