I i have been a huge fan of these novels for years, have read them all 3 or more times, and have been really enjoying this series of audio books - nicely ,though not brilliantly, read by Robert Hardy. He has a tendency to get to sound as though he has got to the end of a line of tect expecting the sentence to end there, and when it doesn't he tacks the final piece up in a slightly lame way.
His characterisation of the two main protagonists is good and improves over the series.
