Good story, pity about the narrator.

One of my favourite books. I felt a different narrator would have improved the experience; his attempt at a Scottish accent was awful. so although I enjoyed the story, it could have been better.

Not impressed

The story is not very gripping and not convincing. The writing is nothing great. The narrator's voice is good but his pronunciation is not always correct.
