Top critical review
on 7 March 2014
I've read all the Daisy Dalrymple books and enjoyed them. I was very much looking forward to listening to them again as I drifted off to sleep. Unfortunately I was very disappointed with the semi-American voice of the reader Bernadette Dunne. Her accent swung between upper class British, Australian cockney and Asian Welsh -all very bizarre! All it needed was BBC pronunciation!
I had to replay the section when she pronounced 'passage' as 'parsage', very distracting and unfortunately means I will not buy anymore with her as the reader!
Love the books, the stories are great and Carola Dunn is a good writer, just a shame about the choice of reader which I assume was chosen to include the American market.
