This audio book is ok but it is only narrated by Paul Nanson ( the author) for about a paragraph. The rest of the entire book is narrated by someone called Theo Solomon. It comes across as a fake upperclass accent and I found it annoying and off putting. I blame apple as they said it was narrated by the author and when you preview it , the preview is from the first paragraph and thus read by the author. If you can deal with fake posh accents, fill your boots!
